RCR Session: Student-Initiated Human Subjects Research

Graduate and undergraduate student researchers are an integral part of GW's research ecosystem. Student-initiated research involving human subjects must follow the same guidelines as research conducted by faculty and staff. However, research conducted by students has additional considerations such as time frame, experience and faculty input/responsibility.

Facilitators from GW’s Office of Human Research will discuss ethical and practical considerations for human subjects protections in student-initiated research and engage the attendees in case study discussions. This session is targeted towards undergraduate and graduate student researchers and their mentors.
