WELCOME TO
THE INSTITUTIONAL REVIEW BOARD (IRB)
The Institutional Review Board is in place to protect the rights and welfare of research subjects, through review of research involving human subjects at Chicago State University.

Note that many IRB forms have recently changed due to the implementation of the new federal Common Rule, the regulation that governs human subjects protection in the United States, on Jan. 21, 2019. This includes new model consent documents as well as other new forms. The forms on the IRB site are the correct forms to use. Please make sure you are not using old forms.
