The Office of Research Compliance, Integrity, and Safety houses the mandated federal review boards for research.  These include the Institutional Review Board (IRB) which handles protections and approvals for research involving human subjects, the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) which is responsible for protections and approvals regarding research with animals, and the Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) which is  the authority for protections and approvals with research involving biohazards.  If your research may involve one or all of these areas please contact our office for assistance.
