CEHHS travel support is available to students presenting papers, posters, and abstracts at professional meetings. Travel associated with student organizations, exhibit booths, and program recruitment is not funded through college funds. Travel requests must be submitted to the associate dean’s office at least one week prior to the travel dates. International travel that involves a request for SARIF support funds must be submitted at least one month prior to the travel dates.
CEHHS students will receive up to $50 support for research presentations. When several students are participating in the same presentation, the amount of funding per student will be reduced to ensure that college resources to support students are distributed equitably across departments and programs. Students can seek additional support through the Graduate Student Senate Travel Award (set deadlines each semester). All requests must be made prior to the travel dates and comply with all related policies associated with this resource. More information regarding this fund and the required application can be found here: Travel Awards.
The IRB is the Institutional Review Board at the University of Tennessee. It has the responsibility of reviewing all research projects that involve human subjects. The Institutional Review Board (IRB) regulates all research activities involving human subjects on the UT Knoxville campus. The IRB is a committee appointed to ensure rights, safety, and welfare of human research subjects; ensure compliance with all applicable federal and state laws/regulations; and conduct ethical reviews of human research activities including initial, continuation, modification, unanticipated problems and alleged noncompliance. Its primary responsibility is to assure UT Knoxville researchers operate within the provisions of the Federalwide Assurance of Compliance filed with the US Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP).
The IRB review process is now accomplished online through iMedRIS. More information can be found here: IRB FAQ.
