An Institutional Review Board (IRB) is a group of people formally designated to review and monitor research involving human subjects. The purpose of the IRB is to protect the rights and welfare of individuals who are participating as subjects in the research. The IRB has the authority to approve, disapprove, and require modifications to research projects involving human subjects. Once approved, the IRB must monitor the progress of the ongoing research, prospectively approve modifications, and, if necessary to protect subjects, suspend a research project.
Research conducted by MUHAS University affiliates using human participants is overseen by MUHAS University's IRB. Its purpose is to facilitate human subjects’ research and to ensure the rights and welfare of human subjects are protected during their participation. All Human Subjects Research conducted by students, faculty, or staff of MUHAS University must receive approval from the MUHAS University IRB. If your research meets the definitions of both research and human subjects, you must complete the IRB process.
