Institutional Review Board Home


Jacksonville University recognizes that an Institutional Review Board is an indispensable body regarding oversight of research activities undertaken by its faculty, staff, and students. As research activities often involve the potential for abuse of a subject's autonomy and / or privacy rights, Jacksonville University has developed this board to ensure that the rights of all research subjects are protected. All research that involves human subjects, tissues/specimens, data/records, or surveys requires review and approval from the IRB. Researchers may not collect data from human subjects until after IRB approval has been obtained.
