Exempt Research

RIT’s Policy for the Protection of Human Subects in Research requires that the Human Subjects Research Office (HSRO) review all research involving human subjects to determine whether the research activity falls into an Exempt research category as defined in the Federal Regulations.

Since it is so important that subjects are provided with sufficient information about the research to protect their rights and welfare, subjects participating in Exempt research activities should be provided with written copies of information about the research and their part in it. Investigators are not expected to gather a signature documenting receipt of this information, but all Exempt studies must include the information.
