Institutional Review Board
Institutional Review Board (IRB) Operations provides policies, procedures, and guidance to facilitate the review process of human subjects research at NYU Langone. A satellite IRB office is located on the NYU Long Island School of Medicine campus.
We review, approve the initiation of, and conduct ongoing evaluations of research involving human subjects, and offer comprehensive research guidelines. We also educate investigators and research staff about their ethical responsibility to protect research participants.
Education and Training in Human Subjects Research Protection
All staff who conduct research that involves human subjects, either directly or through the use of human tissues or data, must complete one of the required basic science modules through the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) Program. Additional IRB courses and training opportunities are also available. Learn more about required and recommended IRB education and training, including how to register.
Policies and Guidelines
Please review NYU Langone’s policies and guidelines governing research with human subjects, as well as the procedures for submitting research proposals for review through Research Navigator.
Research Navigator is a single sign-on portal for our investigators to manage their research portfolio. To submit a study for initial review, you must first complete your MyStudies profile, a module within Research Navigator. Research Navigator is also used for timely submission of continuing review, modifications, closures, and reportable new information.
IRB meetings are held every Tuesday and the first and third Thursdays of the month. Submissions are placed on the next available agenda once IRB preview is complete.
We are committed to ensuring that all our research activities involving human subjects are conducted in a way that promotes the rights and welfare of research participants.
