November 20: Dr. Shah Open House
Topic: Open House
Once again, it is my pleasure to invite any and all faculty members, staffers or administrators to join me in my office.
The purpose of these informal get-togethers is to stay in touch at the grass roots level with the happenings at UTPA. Whether you have a concern, a suggestion to improve service or an idea concerning research, I want to hear it.
No need to make an appointment. Please come by the office and share your thoughts and concerns.
The Office of Research is easy to find. We're in the REIN Building (known to some as the Old Computer Center) which is across the parking lot from the Student Union, and just behind the Administration Building.

Achieving ethical clearance for human subjects research can be a daunting task. To assist in the ethical clearance process, the UTPA Institutional Review Board (IRB) is opening its doors on the second Monday of each month.
No appointment needed.
Whether you have a concern, a question, a suggestion, or idea regarding the IRB or your human subject research protocol, we are here to assist! Come and chat with those responsible for research ethics at UTPA. We are happy to help YOU achieve your research goals in a timely way!
