On May 25, 2018, the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) became effective. The GDPR may affect your human subjects research study. If so, a GDPR Notice must be provided to subjects as part of the consent process. In late fall 2018, the IRB will provide more guidance regarding the GDPR on this site. In the interim, if you are unsure as to whether the GDPR affects your study, please contact the IRB.
