Institutional Review Board for the Protection of Haman Subjects in Research
The Institutional Review Board for the Protection of Human Subjects in Research (IRB) is responsible for reviewing research projects involving human subjects for compliance with federal regulatory guidelines, reviewing and approving grant proposals involving human subjects, and providing faculty information on human research regulatory guidelines and policies. The IRB is delegated final authority regarding what research is subject to review and whether that research is in compliance with federal regulatory guidelines. Policy decisions are forwarded to the Vice Provost for Research and Graduate Studies.
Membership consists of at least one community representative, a representative for the Office of Research and Technology Transfer, and at least nine faculty representatives appointed to staggered three-year terms by the Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and Research. Note: Regulatory guidelines require some faculty familiar with human subject research, some faculty familiar with social/psychological dimensions of research, and at least one faculty member from a non-scientific area. The Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and Research must make appointments consistent with the federal regulatory guidelines. The committee elects a chair at the beginning of each year.
