The Health Sciences IRB (HSIRB) and the Minimal Risk IRB (MRIRB) review all human subject research protocols in accordance with applicable federal regulations, state laws, and local and university policies.
The IRB has created a three step process to help researchers stay in compliance with the various aspects of compliance associated with human subject research.
- Step 1–Determine if your project falls under the purview of an IRB
- Step 2–What to do if your project requires IRB review
- Step 3–What to do if your project requires review by the Health Sciences or Minimal Risk IRB
- Special Issues to Address
If you are considering human subject research, the IRB should be your primary source of safety information.
