Department of Defense (DoD) Research

Department of Defense (DoD) components have significantly enhanced their human subjects protection requirements, including the application of those requirements to researchers who are not employees of the DOD. The UW has signed an Addendum to its Federalwide Assurance (FWA) that applies Department of Defense (DoD) regulations and policies for the protection of human research subjects when conducting, reviewing, approving, overseeing, supporting or managing human subjects research involving the DoD. Responsibility for upholding DoD requirements for human subjects research is shared between researchers and their teams, the UW administration, and DoD.
