Luke Fera

Luke Fera '06
Biology Major

"LSSU has a great reputation for placing students in graduate and professional schools. Many of my classmates from LSSU are now pursuing graduate and professional studies at some of the finest universities in Canada and the United States."

"The student-faculty interaction and the ability to conduct research at the undergraduate level really helped me to achieve success in a competitive graduate program. My professors at LSSU were always interested in helping us succeed."

Luke Fera of Sault Ste. Marie graduated from LSSU in 2006 with a degree in biology and is now working toward a master's degree in epidemiology at University of Western Ontario in London. He plans to continue his studies in the medical sciences.

What is the Human Subjects IRB?

The IRB is the Human Subects 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.
