Ensuring the protection of human subjects who participate in research studies is critically important, as is the safeguarding of private data. 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. The DHS IRB hopes to encourage studies which will result in significant new findings and offer potential benefits for DHS clients.
