Our Institutional Review Board (IRB) ensures that the rights and welfare of human subjects are protected, when participating in research conducted by Public Health Solutions employees and their associates. It is available to review research conducted by outside organizations that do not have their own IRB.
The IRB adheres to the requirements set forth in the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Policy for Protection of Human Research Subjects (45 C.F.R. Part 46) for all applicable research, regardless of funding source. The IRB is guided by the principles set forth in the report of the National Commission for the Protection of Human Subjects of Biomedical and Behavioral Research entitled: “Ethical Principles and Guidelines for the Protection of Human Subjects of Research (the “Belmont Report”).
