IRB Responsibility and Authority
To assure the protection of human subjects and to comply with federal law, CHI Memorial requires that, prior to initiation, all research projects involving humans as subjects or human material is reviewed and approved by an Institutional Review Board (IRB).
This policy applies, regardless of the source of funding, to all biomedical and behavioral research involving human subjects conducted at this facility. This process is designed to ensure that the research protects the rights and welfare of the human subjects, for example, by minimizing risks, selecting subjects equitably, obtaining informed consent, and ensuring privacy and confidentiality.
