Institutional Review Board (IRB)

The Institutional Review Board (IRB) is the administrative and decision-making body having responsibility for review and approval of research involving human subjects. Before any research involving human subjects can be initiated it must have received IRB review and approval. The activities of the IRB are administered by the Office of Research Compliance (ORC).

UPDATE (01/19/2018): Common Rule implementation delayed six months. New projected effective date July 19, 2018.
