Institutional Review Board (IRB) to Protect Human Subjects Used in Research Projects
All institutions applying for federal funds must have Institutional Review Boards (IRBs). An IRB is an administrative body with clearly defined policies and procedures to ensure that research activities protect human subjects. Principal investigators submitting proposals involving research and human subjects must complete required forms and submit the project for review by the Pellissippi State IRB prior to recruiting subjects, beginning protocols, or submitting to a funding agency. The Office of Institutional Effectiveness, Research and Planning provides administrative support to the Pellissippi State IRB.
Links to the process and forms needed are in the column on the left.
