Institutional Review Board (IRB)
Marshall University has two IRBs of record registered with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office for Human Research Protections (IRB#1: 00002205 and IRB#2: 00003206).
The university’s Human Research Protection Program Standard Operating Procedures Manual (see the IRB Membership Chapter) details the membership composition, and their roles and responsibilities in evaluating the scientific and ethical integrity of proposed research, including conflict of interest issues. The accurate maintenance of records for each active protocol (e.g., date originally approved, date of most recent approval, date scheduled for next continuing review, reported adverse events, etc.) is a responsibility of the IRB coordinator.
