Institutional Review Board
Welcome to the IRB
for Human Subjects Research
DSU Institutional Review Board reviews research projects which involve human subjects to ensure that subjects are not under any risks and that they have uncoerced and informed consent to their participation.
The primary mission of the IRB is to ensure the protection of the rights and welfare of all human participants in research conducted by university faculty, staff and students. The IRB review process is guided by federal and state regulations, university policy, and the Belmont Report.
