Human Subjects (IRB)
The University’s program on human research protection is based on the three basic ethical tenets of respect for persons, beneficence and justice, and the application of these tenets set forth in the Belmont Report, issued in 1979 by the National Commission for the Protection of Human Subjects of Biomedical and Behavioral Research.
Georgia State University’s Institutional Review Board will apply these tenets to all human subjects research, regardless of funding. The Institutional Review Board is charged with the responsibility of protecting the rights and welfare of human subjects participating in research under the auspices of the institution with which it is affiliated.
