CITI Training Requirements for Authorized Study Personnel Heading link
Effective July 1, 2021
The Peoria IRB (PIRB) is no longer requiring the completion of the CITI GCP Course for NEW investigators/authorized research personnel (Basic GCP Course) or for PIRB-approved investigators/authorized research personnel (GCP Refresher Course) UNLESS they are performing:
- NIH funded research; and/or
- Clinical trials of drugs, biologics, and devices, as well as behavioral interventions and social science research studies.
A clinical trial is a research study performed in people aimed at evaluating a medical, surgical, or behavioral intervention. They are the primary way that researchers find out if a new treatment, like a new drug, medical device (for example, a pacemaker) or behavioral intervention is safe and effective in people.
