Education and Training is essential in the ethical conduct of human research subject protection.  The MidLands IRB expects the Investigator and the research staff to understand and comply with the regulations, state and local laws, and the MidLands IRB “Guidelines for Investigators”.

The Board expects the Principal Investigator to participate in continuing education devoted to the protection of human research subjects.  The Investigator should ensure that the research staff is properly trained on human research subject protection.
