Institutional Review Board
The Institutional Review Board (IRB) is responsible for recommending approval or disapproval of each proposed research project involving human subjects. IRB approval is necessary before work may begin on research studies.
The IRB reviews all human subject research to assure investigators and research staff comply with established policies and procedures around application, review and reporting processes.
The IRB is comprised of scientific, non-scientific and community members who are responsible for reviewing research protocols, informed consent forms and processes, and adverse events.
