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).
