Institutional Review Board
Institutional review boards are committees formed to review and monitor biomedical and behavioral research with human subjects. All research involving human subjects must be approved by the IRB before research begins. Visit the SNHU IRB site to learn more, review the research submission process, and download the forms you'll need to get started.
In this module, you will explore the following aspects of using human subjects in research:
1. The current regulatory framework and its historical context
2. Basic ethical principles for protecting human subjects in research, and key issues in research involving human subjects
3. Functions of the Institutional Review Board (IRB) at the University of New Hampshire (UNH), its review and approval processes, and a researcher’s primary responsibilities
