RESEARCH INTEGRITY AND COMPLIANCE

IRB EDUCATION IN HUMAN SUBJECT PROTECTION

The Temple University Institutional Review Boards (IRBs) are responsible for the regulation and monitoring of all University research on or involving human subjects.  The IRB must ensure that all federal and state regulatory requirements are met by the University.  Research Administration at Temple University is responsible for enforcing the policies and directives of the IRB.  Two committees of the IRB review research at Temple University.  Committee A reviews research in which subjects receive medical intervention.  Committee B reviews behavioral and social sciences in which subjects do not receive medical intervention.

 

All members of a study team involved in an IRB application must receive IRB education in Human Subject Protection.  An IRB application, with personnel listed who do not have valid proof of current IRB education for all members of the study team WILL NOT BE REVIEWED/APPROVED by the IRB and will be returned to the PI.  Web-based research compliance courseware is available at the following url:
