Institutional Review Board (IRB)

Research conducted by the Northeast Ohio Medical University using human participants is overseen by the Institutional Review Board (IRB). The primary purpose of the NEOMED IRB is to facilitate the review, approval, modification, and disapproval of research protocols, while ensuring the rights and welfare of human subjects are protected while participating in research.

The IRB process at NEOMED is based on rules and regulations for federally funded research, primarily the Code of Federal Regulation (45 CFR 46) and supporting materials such as the Belmont Report.
