The Behavioral and Social Science IRB reviews non-medical research that includes, but is not limited to behavioral, social, and environmental studies. Its members include representatives with a broad range of expertise. The Behavioral and Social Science IRB members who are faculty are nominated by the Deans of the schools or the department Chairs; they are appointed by the Director of the Office of Research Integrity.
(IRB#2 does not review VA Medical Center research or FDA-regulated research. Research under those two categories should be submitted under IRB#1.)
All research involving the use of human subjects subject to the Marshall University Human Research Protection Program MUST be submitted to an IRB designated by Marshall University for review and approval PRIOR to initiation of the project.
