An Institutional Review Board (IRB) over sees human participant’s safety when conducting human research. TheCarrick Institute for Graduate Studies IRB is approved by the United States Office for Protecting Human Research (OHRP) and the Federal Drug Administration (FDA).
In the United States, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Department of Health and Human Services (specifically Office for Human Research Protections) regulations have empowered IRBs to approve, require modifications in planned research prior to approval, or disapprove research. IRBs are responsible for critical oversight functions for research conducted on human subjects that are “scientific,” “ethical,” and “regulatory.”
The Carrick Institute for Graduate Studies’ Institutional Review Board has been created and is dedicated to protecting human subjects in any and all research that it participates in.
