Institutional Review Board

The Institutional Review Board (IRB) reviews research projects that involve human subjects to uphold two broad standards: first, that subjects are not placed at undue risk; second, that they give uncoerced, informed consent to their participation. With representation from a wide range of scientific disciplines and from outside the academic community, the IRB gives prompt but individualized attention to the numerous research projects at the university. Prior to submitting your protocol, please review the newly updated IRB Manual, which now includes a policy on research utilizing social media.



Meeting Schedule

All review / approval / modification requests must be submitted at least 2 weeks prior to a meeting for consideration.
