The SIUC Human Subjects Committee is responsible for reviewing all human-subjects research projects, regardless of discipline or funding source, conducted by individuals affiliated with SIUC, including students. This review protects not only the human subjects involved in a research project, but also the researcher and, by extension, the University.  No research involving human subjects should be conducted before determining if the research is subject to HSC review and, if so, receives HSC approval. *All Human Subject's applications must be submitted and reviewed. Some research is not considered human subjects research. The HSC is the decider on this determination not the researcher. If a project is considered not human subjects research, then our office will send you a determination letter.*
