Institutional Review Board - IRB

 
Our Institutional Review Board is responsible for protecting the rights and welfare of human research subjects recruited to participate in research activities conducted by the department. All research studies involving human subjects must be reviewed by the Institutional Review Board, and approval must precede the initiation of any work involving human subjects.
 
The Institutional Review Board, which meets quarterly, currently has 12 primary members, of whom nine are department employees and three are from outside the department. The board has broad representation to serve the public health and environmental divisions of the department.
