IRB Brown Bag: 'Export Controls in Research'

Thursday, 24 August, 2017

The Institutional Review Board (IRB) will hold its next Brown Bag session from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Aug. 24, in Room 104, Learning Resources Center.

The session, “Export Controls in Research” is designed to introduce participants to what types of research require export control review; important export control terms and definitions; and how to complete the export control review process, including the IRB application.

Saint Louis University strives to be fully compliant with federal export control regulations while maintaining an open and collaborative academic environment. For reasons of national security and/or protection of trade, certain activities within the University are subject to U.S. export control laws and regulations. Research that involves international components (i.e., international travel, foreign funding source, foreign visitors and/or collaboration) requires export control review. In addition, research funded by the Department of Defense, NASA, or Homeland Security requires review. Finally, if the terms “ITAR,” “EAR,” “OFAC,” or “CUI” appear within the terms of a research agreement, the research requires export control review.

CNE credits will be offered for attending this session. More information on the credits will be forthcoming. Participants should also bring a snack or lunch.

The IRB’s Brown Bag series is designed to provide the SLU research community with in-depth understanding and discussion concerning the latest policies, procedures, and requirements pertaining to human subjects research.

Brown Bag sessions are for SLU research professionals and coordinators, and any student, staff, or faculty member who is looking for continuing IRB education.
