Institutional Review Board


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).
