Research at URI


Unanticipated Problems

Adverse events that arise during the course of a project involving risks to human subjects or others must be reported immediately to the IRB. The Adverse Event form is located on IRBNet under Forms and Templates.

Report a Concern

Faculty, staff and students who conduct research on behalf of the University assume responsibility for conducting their duties within the law and in keeping with URI's ethical standards. In keeping with this responsibility, each individual must:

  • Understand and follow the institutional principles of conduct in the comportment of their University obligations,
  • Ensure that they and the staff who report to them are aware of and operate in accordance with applicable laws and policies, and
  • Report concerns or incidents of non-compliance
