IRB Review Process

Researchers are required to submit a request for review to the IRB if their research involves human participants or their data. The IRB will determine if the research meets the requirements for oversight, according to the federal regulations (45CFR46). The request must be reviewed by the IRB prior to collecting data or contacting participants. For continuing or modifying a current protocol, use the appropriate form located on the IRB Forms page.
