Institutional Review Board

The University of Saint Francis has a standing Institutional Review Board (IRB) that reviews all research involving humans, animals and/or biologically hazardous materials. All research, prior to being conducted, must be approved for its protection of human participants or animal subjects by the university’s IRB. The IRB’s role is to assure that ethical designs and controls are implemented in any research conducted by individuals associated with the university.
