Alum Success

Elaina Marinik

My education at Lake State taught me not only the basics of exercise science and health and wellness but prepared me for my future research career. I became involved in national organizations, improved my networking skills to create working relationships, and ended up with an amazing paid internship that turned into a 3-year research professional position at the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta, GA. Now in graduate school pursuing a doctorate degree at Virginia Tech, I rely on the knowledge I acquired at Lake State and put it to practice daily while discussing health-related topics in class or conducting obesity and inflammation research in our laboratory.

Welcome!

What is the IRB?

The IRB is the Institutional Review Board. Administrative law and government regulations have policies that minimum requirements are to be followed in conducting research. The LSSU IRB reviews student and faculty research projects where human subjects are involved. The IRB helps ensure that when students conduct research they are conduting it in a ethical and legal manner. It is also to set policies and standards to make the research being conducted follows these rules.

This web site provides a central location to inform students of the IRB policies, to provide students with a simpler way to access to the approved IRB proposal forms, and to understand the policies the IRB has set in place. This site offers links to resources and tutorials on writing research and citing references.
