About the IRB

The Campbell University Institutional Review Board (IRB) reviews all research projects involving human subjects for safety, compliance with regulations, scientific quality, and ethical standards. IRB provides guidance and resources for investigators and project team members. The IRB is overseen and guided by the Human Research Protection Program.

Determine if Your Project Requires IRB Review

An investigator who intends to conduct research that might involve human subject research must apply to the IRB for review and approval prior to beginning research activities. We have created questions and tools to help you determine if your project requires IRB review.
