UMass Boston

Human Subjects

University policy requires that all research involving human subjects be reviewed and approved by the UMass Boston Institutional Review Board (IRB) prior to initiation of the research. This requirement applies to all human subjects research conducted by faculty, staff, and students, on- and off-campus, regardless of the funding support, if any, for the project.

UMass Boston and the IRB are excited about the research being done in our community, and we look forward to working with you.
