The Office of Research has launched a website that will list UNC faculty, staff, and student researchers' projects that recruit human research subjects.
The service is available only to UNC researchers who are conducting investigations previously approved by UNC's Institutional Review Board. Having submitted an IRB application with a pending approval does not constitute eligibility.
Instructions are included on the site for obtaining a copy of your IRB approval through IRB-Net in case you don't have your approval notice.
Researchers seeking subjects submit information using the electronic submission form on the new website. Submissions will be reviewed and posted on an approximate monthly basis.
Although the need for subjects will be communicated periodically to internal and external audiences, to avoid the disappointment of an inadequate sample size, researchers are advised to be realistic about the numbers of individuals who'll see their entry and choose to volunteer, and are encouraged to seek participants through other sources specified in their IRB protocols.
