The Research Compliance Unit helps faculty, staff and students comply with all applicable federal, state, and institutional requirements and policies. Research that includes animals, humans, recombinant DNA, infectious agents, or toxic chemicals must be reviewed by designated university committees. Please view the provided information on policies and procedures, guidelines, educational programs, and monitoring and accountability in these areas.

Institutional Review Board (IRB)

The role of the Institutional Review Board (IRB) is to review all the proposed research involving human subjects and to ensure that subjects are treated ethically and that their rights and welfare are adequately protected.

The IRB process is administered through the Research Compliance Unit. Investigators and student researchers are not allowed to solicit human subject participation or begin data collection prior to receiving IRB approval in writing
