Research Policies and Procedures
Wesleyan Institutional Review Board
The Human Subjects Institutional Review Board (IRB) is charged with reviewing all research involving human subjects conducted under the auspices of Wesleyan University. The purpose of an IRB is to provide a single, comprehensive standard of protection for human subjects in research. This includes federally funded research as well as research that is not funded or is funded by other sources. Faculty, staff, and students proposing research using human subjects must submit a written description of their proposal and obtain IRB approval of the proposal prior to commencing research.
