Committee Information

The Institutional Review Board protects the rights of humans in research and maintains confidentiality of data. History has demonstrated the need for appropriate oversight, which resulted in the regulations we have today.

Activities that may require IRB review and approval:

  • Surveys and questionnaires
  • Interviews and focus groups
  • Collecting or using data about humans
  • Use of human tissues/specimens
  • Activities involving interaction or intervention with human subjects
  • Data about identifiable living persons when the data is not publicly available
  • Data or samples that can be linked to an identifiable living person

See FSH 1640.54 and 5200 for a detailed description of IRB functions, membership and human subjects research.
