Institutional Review Board for the Protection of Human Subjects in Research
Committee reports to: Vice President for Research and Economic Development

University policy and federal regulations require that all research involving human subjects be reviewed and approved by the University's Institutional Review Board for the Protection of Human Subjects in Research (IRB) prior to initiation of the research. This requirement applies to all human subject research conducted by faculty, staff, and students, on- and off-campus, whatever the funding support for the project. The IRB is guided in its decisions by the Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects (the Common Rule), published in the Federal Register on June 18, 1991, and by Federal Regulation 45 CFR 46, "Code for the Protection of Human Subjects in Research," published in the Federal Register in March 1983, and applicable ethical standards as published by professional groups and societies.
