Institutional Review Board

The Institutional Review Board (IRB) is a faculty led committee which meets monthly to review research involving human subjects in order to ensure that all projects conform to federal and institutional regulations and policies.

Human Research Protection Program Analysts & Staff

The Human Research Protection Program is staffed with one administrative coordinator, and 3 analyst/educators. They are responsible for administrative (expedited and exempt) review of protocols, and handle the majority of protocol analysis and communication with investigators.

They are also responsible for the Program’s comprehensive educational offerings.
