The IRB reviews research projects that involve human subjects to uphold two broad standards: first, that subjects are not placed at undue risk; second, that they give uncoerced, informed consent to their participation.
With representation from a wide range of scientific disciplines and from outside the academic community, the IRB gives prompt but individualized attention to the numerous research projects at the university.
