Institutional Review Board (IRB)
All research involving human subjects must be approved by the Academic Affairs Institutional Review Board (AA-IRB). The Guide to the IRB Process will familiarize you with basic policies for IRB review and approval. Only investigators who have completed human subjects training can perform research involving human subjects.
Information on submitting an IRB through SILS is contained on our SILS IRB Page.
