Protecting Human Subjects

The TWU Institutional Review Boards (IRBs) review research projects that involve human subjects to protect their rights and welfare. Therefore, it is the policy of TWU that all research conducted by any TWU faculty member, staff member, or student using human subjects must have prior approval from a TWU IRB before the research is initiated. Human subjects research at TWU is governed by TWU's federalwide assurance, policy, and associated procedures.

See basic information regarding whether IRB review is required, the level of review, whether more than one IRB is involved, committee membership, deadlines and timelines, guidance for specific situations, and other resources for human subject researchers.
