Institutional Review Board – Human Subjects

Effective August 26, 2021, in-person human subjects research, put on hold due to COVID-19 restrictions, may now be conducted on-campus as well as in university human research labs.  See the ORPC myUMBC announcement.

UMBC has an Institutional Review Board (IRB) whose responsibility is to protect the rights and ensuring the safety of human subjects participating in research. The IRB requires that all investigators who are affiliated with UMBC and who are engaged in research, regardless of funding, comply with both UMBC procedures and federal regulations regarding the protection of human subjects in protocol activities.
