Institutional Review Board

The role of the Institutional Review Board (IRB) is to review all proposed research involving human subjects to ensure that subjects are treated ethically and that their rights and welfare are adequately protected.

The Lipscomb IRB is guided by the ethical principles set forth in the Belmont Report. Investigators need to be familiar with these principles in designing and implementing their research projects.

For detailed information on policies and procedures related human subjects research, please consult the Lipscomb University Institutional Review Board Policies and Procedures Manual.
