  • Why is my research subject to review by the IRB?
    ​The University has negotiated a Federalwide Assurance (FWA) with the Federal Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP). Under this assurance—and under federal law—the University must reasonably ensure that human subjects are adequately protected in research conducted under its auspices. IRB review of all research involving human subjects is required for the university to uphold its assurance with the federal government.
