Institutional Review Board
PROTECTING HUMAN SUBJECTS THROUGH INSTITUTIONAL REVIEW BOARDS
All institutions applying for federal research funds must have Institutional Review Boards (IRBs) with clearly defined policies and procedures ensuring that grant-funded research activities protect human subjects. Upon being awarded federal funds, principal investigators and/or project directors whose activities involve research on human subjects must complete required forms and submit the project for IRB review and approval before any research on human subjects is allowed to commence.
IRB Committee Meetings
The Institutional Review Board conducts its meetings the first Friday of each quarter. Any proposals requiring full review must be submitted no later than ten (10) working days prior to a scheduled meeting. Forms may be found on the related downloads page under "Institutional Review Board." If you have questions about the IRB, please contact Dr. Cheryl Rogers (IRB Chair).

Institutional Review Board Training
Federal regulations require IRB committee member training. IRB members can follow the links (below) to complete training at the time of their appointment. IRB members must then submit a copy of the certificate to the IRB Chair indicating they have completed human subjects training.
