What is the process for securing a letter for NIH, certifying successful completion of education in the protection of human subjects for all key personnel?
IRB staff will generate the letter of education certification upon request by the investigator, or in response to a request by NIH. Certification of all individuals named as key personnel in the grant application or contract proposal who are affiliated with Rutgers will be verified internally. Key personnel who are not affiliated with Rutgers may satisfy the education requirement by either of two methods: a) successfully complete the Rutgers online education program; or b) provide written certification from their institution that they have successfully completed a comparable program. Key personnel who have no contact with human subjects, or with confidential data about human subjects are exempt from the education requirement; however, the principal investigator must provide this information to ORSP in writing. To request a letter, or for additional information, contact Michelle Gibel, CIM, at 732/932-0150 ext. 2104 or by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
