Under the direction of the Office of the Vice Provost for Research, Northeastern University requires completion of training on the protection of human subjects and the ethical principles of research for all human subject research, regardless of whether or not investigators have received funding to support their project. This training is mandatory for all faculty, staff, and students who conduct/supervise research involving human subjects whether on campus or off-campus, whether funded or unfunded.
Documentation of training must be on file with the Office of Human Subject Research Protection. HSRP will accept documentation of human subject protection training from other institutions. If you have not yet completed some type of human subject protection training, the NIH Office of Extramural Research offers a free online course titled "Protecting Human Research Participants," which can be accessed at the following url: http://phrp.nihtraining.com/users/login.php.
Once you have completed the online training course, please forward a copy of your training certificate to HSRP. The certificate can be sent as an email attachment, web link, via fax or in hard copy.
