Research Safety

For safety purposes, if a consultant is reviewing client’s research data, the data must be de-identified, or the consultant must be added to the client’s IRB protocol prior to the consulting meetings. There are no exceptions for this rule. The consultant is not responsible for doing the clients’ work for them. Clients are encouraged to establish/use hourly consulting services (i.e., a contractual service) with the Lab if necessary. Please contact the SAS Analytics Lab Director, Dr. Minsoo Kang ( or consulting project leader, Dr. Taeyeon Oh ( for further details.
