Institutional Review Board (IRB) 

The Institutional Review Board is responsible for reviewing research involving human subjects and enforcing the requirement of informed consent to assure that the rights and welfare of subjects who participate in research conducted by WSU faculty, staff and students are protected and that the University is in compliance with federal requirements (Title 45 Code of Federal Regulations, Part 46).

The IRB meets on an as-needed basis over the summer. Please contact the IRB Administrator if you have a study that may require full committee review during this time (May 15 - August 11). If your study qualifies for exempt or expedited review, it can be submitted anytime.
