Institutional Review Board
The primary responsibility of the Roseman University IRB is to safeguard the rights and welfare of human subjects who participate in research conducted under the auspices of the university and to ensure that subjects are aware of their rights and protections available to them.
The University’s human research protection program is based on three basic ethical principles described in the National Commission for the Protection of Human Subjects of Biomedical and Behavioral Research. The three principles are respect for persons, beneficence and justice. The application of the following principles can be found in the Belmont Report.
The IRB is charged with the review of all research projects that involve humans. The IRB has the authority to approve, require modifications (to secure approval), or disapprove all research activities that fall within its jurisdiction as specified by both the federal regulations and institutional policy.
The IRB is comprised of individuals from across the Roseman campuses with clinical and research expertise. Non-affiliated and non-scientific members represent the concerns of the community outside of Roseman.
