Subject Population: Vulnerable Group Checklist
The federal regulations provide special oversight for research subjects that are defined as vulnerable populations. If subjects from vulnerable populations are to be targeted or specifically included the research project, indicate this on the application.
If subjects from vulnerable populations are not specifically targeted, as a part of the inclusion criteria for participants, check "None of the above." For example, if subjects will be recruited from the general population, there is no need to indicate the inclusion of vulnerable populations.
