The requirements of the Protection of Minors Policy apply to research projects or protocols in which the human subjects involved are under the age of 18. The Policy contains three main requirements applicable to those who participate in research involving minors:
- Reporting of Known or Suspected Abuse or Neglect
- Training and Education Requirements
- Background Check Requirement
Further information about the application of the policy and the responsibilities of Principal Investigators and other study team members for research projects involving minors, is available on the Institutional Review Board (IRB) web site.
