Think back on your National Institutes of Health (NIH) training and share what you learned. How will this apply to having an IRB form completed and why? 

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is the premier biomedical research agency in the world. NIH trainees receive unparalleled training in the basic and clinical sciences, which prepare them to become the next generation of biomedical leaders. One of the critical components of NIH training is learning to navigate the regulatory landscape of biomedical research. This includes understanding the process for obtaining approval from an Institutional Review Board (IRB) to conduct research involving human subjects.

My NIH training taught me a great deal about the process of conducting research and the importance of ethical considerations. In particular, I learned about the need to obtain informed consent from research participants and the importance of ensuring that research is conducted to protect participants’ rights and welfare. The IRB process is essential to ensuring research participants’ safety and safeguarding their rights. NIH trainees must understand how to complete an IRB form and the required information (Mozersky et al., 2020). The IRB form requires trainees to provide detailed information about their proposed research project, including the risks and benefits of participating. The IRB uses this information to determine whether the research is ethical and meets the standards set forth by the federal government.

NIH trainees learn how to complete an IRB form as part of their training to conduct research ethically and responsibly. This knowledge is essential for protecting the rights of research participants and ensuring the safety of all involved. The lessons learned prepare trainees to become the next generation of biomedical leaders. The information I learned during my NIH training will help me complete the IRB form and ensure that my research study is conducted ethically (Mozersky et al., 2020). In particular, the form requires that I provide detailed information about my study, obtain informed consent from all participants, and ensure that my research poses no risks to participants. By completing the form and following these guidelines, I will be able to conduct my research ethically and responsibly.
