Human Subjects - IRB
Institutional Review Board (IRB)
The mission of the IRB is to:
- promote the rights and welfare of human research participants
- facilitate ethical research
- provide guidance and support to the research community in the conduct of research with human subjects
- assist the research community in ensuring compliance with the standards set forth in the Code of Federal Regulations by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
If the proposed research activity is a systematic investigation designed to develop or contribute to generalizable knowledge and it involves human participants, then the activity will require review and approval by the OSU IRB before any recruitment or research activities may begin.
