Institutional Review Board (IRB) - for the Protection of Human Subjects


To conduct research that involves the use of human subjects, the University is required by federal mandate to have an assurance of compliance for protection of human research subjects. This assurance serves as the University of Denver's agreement with the government in promising that all individuals involved in human subjects research will be treated ethically.

The University's IRB policies and procedures are based upon the following:

University of Denver - Federal Wide Assurance

Code of Federal Regulations for Protection of Human Subjects

Code of Federal Regulations for Designated Member/Expedited Review Procedures of Human Subjects

The Belmont Report
