CITY TECH SPECIFIC POLICIES
The Provost’s Office at City Tech receives annual reports regarding all human subjects research conducted at the college from City Tech’s HRPP Office and maintains the right to approve or disallow any research project occurring at City Tech.
Outside (non-City Tech or non-CUNY) researchers must receive permission from the Provost’s Office to conduct human subjects research at City Tech. If you are an outside researcher who would like to conduct research either at City Tech or with City Tech students, faculty or staff, please contact City Tech’s HRPP Office regarding the initial steps to obtaining the necessary permission from the Provost’s Office.
CUNY requires that all researchers at the college, regardless of whether or not they are conducting human subjects or any other type of research, must maintain an up-to-date Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) form on file with the college’s Research Compliance Officer. The college’s current Research Compliance Officer is Professor Roman Kezerashvili from the Physics Department. Please contact Professor Kezerashvili directly (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions regarding the RCR as this form is not required by City Tech’s HRPP Office and should not be included in your IRB application.
