The majority of studies will be selected at random for review. However, consideration may also be given to:
1. Higher risk studies
2. Investigator-initiated protocols
3. Studies that include vulnerable populations such as UNR employees and students, terminally-ill and decision-impaired, or identified in 45CFR46 subparts C and D, pregnant women, fetuses, neonates, prisoners, and children.
4. Potential for conflict of interest
5. "Directed" interests of the IRB or UNR RIO
