Informed Consent Webpage Update

Dear Research Community,

The Institutional Review Board Office (IRB) updated the Informed Consent webpage to incorporate electronic consent information. The webpage has also been updated to clarify the different types of consent waivers and when each type of consent waiver is applicable.

This is an excellent resource for investigators to reference as they develop research protocols. If you have questions about the above, please contact the IRB Office at or

Thank you,
