Institutional Review Board

An Institutional Review Board (IRB) is a committee established by an institution to protect the rights and welfare of human subjects recruited to participate in research activities. Federal and state regulations and University policy require all human subjects research conducted by Boise State University faculty, staff and students to be approved by the IRB before the research can be conducted. The Office of Research Compliance provides administrative support.
