If your data is derived from human subjects

if any of your data is derived from human subjects, FaceBase will require demonstration that the participants have consented to having their data shared publicly, through controlled access. The submitting institution is required to submit an Institutional Certification verifying this information.

For institutions outside the United States interested in submitting human data, there is an IRB process in place that you can follow.

For questions related to IRBs, please consult the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services' site for the Office of Human Protections (OHRP), in particular Register IRBs & Obtain FWAs.
