Institutional Review Board: policies and procedures

To make certain private data is released only when authorized and to provide oversight for certain research projects, the Department of Human Services Institutional Review Board (IRB) reviews and evaluates research projects which include contact with DHS participants or which use DHS data.

Review the DHS IRB application policy thoroughly to understand all researcher responsibilities before requesting IRB review.

No research may begin until you receive a letter of approval from the IRB.
