Human Subjects Research
Illinois State is committed to protection of the rights and welfare of human subjects participating in research under the authority of the university. All research involving human subjects must be conducted in accordance with relevant federal regulations and University policy.
Any research involving the use of human subjects must be reviewed and approved by the Institutional Review Board (IRB). Depending on the type of research activities you will be conducting, the IRB may need to review it accordingly.
