Submission to the Institutional Review Board | OSU CCTS

All research activities involving human subjects must be reviewed and approved by an Institutional Review Board (IRB) unless the Office of Responsible Research Practices (ORRP) prospectively determines that the research falls into a category of exemption established by federal regulation. In accordance with the Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP) guidelines and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations, the IRB reviews human subjects research proposals to ensure risks have been minimized and assessed against the potential for benefit before human subjects participate in the research. The IRB also ensures, when required, that human subjects only volunteer to participate in research after providing legally effective informed consent. Investigators may not solicit subject participation or begin data collection until they have received approval from the appropriate IRB or written concurrence that research has been determined to be exempt from IRB review.
