As part of our support for health sciences endeavors at Illinois, IHSI has compiled information from departments and units across campus to create the  41-page Health Sciences Research Guide. This guide outlines steps for research set up and administration, including sections on human subject payments, IRB approval, animal research, lab safety, professional development, hiring practices, and a number of essential others. This guide will be updated periodically to include the most up-t0-date information. If there is something that is not included in the guide that you feel would be helpful or if you would like to provide us with feedback on the guide, please email
