All research with human subjects carried out by University of Charleston faculty and/or students must be approved by the UC IRB. No research involving human subjects may begin without express written consent from the University of Charleston’s (UC) Institutional Review Board (IRB).
All Investigators must be trained in Human Subject Research required by the Code of Federal Regulations (45 CFR 46). This training ensures that the highest professional standards are employed and that the research procedures do not infringe upon the safety, health, welfare or life of the human subjects. Please contact the IRB to learn more about accessing training programs.
The IRB meets quarterly (August, November, February, and May). Special Meetings may be called on an as needed basis.
The following documents detail the procedure for submitting an application for approval of a research project. If you have concerns, please contact Dr. Rebecca S. Linger at: email@example.com.
