  Research Using Humans as Subjects:

To comply with federal regulations and Miami policies, research involving human subjects requires that researchers be familiar with the ethical issues common to such work. In addition to the required online training, all human subjects research must be reviewed and the methods approved for compliance with the standards of ethical behavior.
