ACHS Institutional Review Board

 

The ACHS Institutional Review Board (IRB) is responsible to ensure that research conducted with human participants complies with Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) requirements.

Primarily, the IRB will ensure:

  1. Compliance with the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Title 45, Part 46: http://www.hhs.gov/ohrp/humansubjects/guidance/45cfr46.html
  2. Research is conducted in accordance with the principles outlined in the Belmont Report: http://www.hhs.gov/ohrp/humansubjects/guidance/belmont.html

The ACHS IRB reviews proposed studies for safety and ethical concerns related to information about study subjects.  Student proposal quality and scientific merit are subject to the approval of faculty and the Academic Dean.
