Institutional Review Board (IRB) for Human Studies

  • The Institutional Review Board is a federally mandated function at institutions of higher education that is responsible for overseeing and safeguarding the rights of human subjects in human subject research.
  • The IRB reviews all research proposals on campus that involve human subjects and provides guidance and resources to faculty members and students as they conduct their research activities.
  • The IRB at BYUI is composed of a director and representatives from each college, as well as a member from outside the University.
  • If you are planning to conduct a research project that will involve human subjects, you will need to register your study with the University.
