Educational Resources

Office for Research Protections     |     Education Program


The Education Program within the Office for Research Protections (ORP) is happy to announce the development of new resources to assist researchers with submission to the Institutional Review Board (IRB) and Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC). These resources can be found on the Education homepage and include videos as well as step-by-step guides for IRB and IACUC submissions. Our goal is to provide easily accessible resources that will offer researchers much needed guidance on developing and managing a submission throughout its lifecycle. The Education Program plans to continue creating and adding resources to our program so be on the lookout for additional resources to come.  The Education page can be easily navigated to via the new ORP homepage.

In addition to new resources, the Education Program would like to highlight Zoom and in-person trainings for IRB and IACUC submission. Please note that the IACUC training does not count towards the SARI@PSU credit requirement. To learn more about the SARI@PSU program visit our SARI webpage. In addition, these trainings do not replace the need to complete the appropriate CITI training for submission to either the IRB or IACUC.

The Education homepage will also link to the required training/education for each compliance program. We hope researchers will use the new webpage to navigate to all of their educational and training needs for the ORP.
