Institutional Review Boards

Every institution receiving HHS funds for research involving human subjects must set up an IRB. The IRB must review all research that is subject to HHS regulation. In most institutions the IRB will conduct a preliminary review of all research involving human subjects, exempting projects that are not subject to HHS regulation from a full review as mandated by the statute. The institution must provide the staff, meeting space, and supplies necessary for the IRB to conduct its reviews and properly document its findings.
