Dear all, this is one of the most constructive discussions I have ever
participated in. I am grateful that this topic was brought up - each
response has added greatly to my understanding of the issues surrounding
IRBs and my confidence in dealing with it.

About undergraduate student research projects: My IRB has what I think is
a good system - I went through a multi-stage online tutorial about the
history of the Belmont Report and the whole IRB process, and once I
completed it, I was "certified" by my IRB and had blanket approval for all
student projects carried out in the course of classwork under me. In other
words, they shifted the responsibility to me to assure that what my
students are doing is in compliance.
