Institutional Review Board (IRB)
The Institutional Review Board (IRB) is a group comprised of full-time faculty members tasked with ensuring the protection of human participants involved in research. Fisher College requires that, prior to commencing research, all projects involving human participants or human materials be reviewed and approved by the IRB. Funded and non-funded research involving human participants or human materials undertaken by faculty, administrators, staff and students of Fisher College must meet the same standards. This applies to researchers and research participants inside and outside Fisher College.
