International Research

POLICY

It is the policy of UTHealth that researchers conducting research at international sites must adhere to the same high standards of research ethics required for human subjects research conducted in the US while at the same time being sensitive to local cultures and practices.

PROCEDURE

Submission: When a researcher is conducting research at international sites, in addition to the materials outlined in the policy on initial review, the researcher should include:

CPHS Staff Review:  CPHS staff will determine if the international site is engaged in research. If the international site is engaged in research and if the research is federally funded or supported, CPHS will check if the international site has a federal wide assurance.  CPHS staff will verify that appropriate local approval documents have been submitted. If researchers prefer to get CPHS review prior to submitting to the local approval documents, UT Houston CPHS approval will be conditional upon receipt of the local approval documents.

CPHS Review: In addition to the criteria listed in the policy Initial Review, CPHS review will involve additional considerations specific to conducting research at international sites:
