Institutional Review Board
The Institutional Review Board (IRB) at UMM is a committee charged with reviewing proposed research involving human subjects, based on professional and ethical considerations. The IRB is responsible for ensuring that research protocols meet established criteria for the protection of human subjects. The IRB also can serve as a source of advice on designing studies to minimize risk to research subjects and may monitor the conduct of approved research. All human subjects research sponsored by UMM, or conducted by or under the direction of any UMM employee, student, or agent in connection with his or her institutional responsibilities must be reviewed by the UMM IRB or designated, external IRB.
