Scope of the IRB
The Institutional Review Board for the Protection of Human Subjects in Research (IRB) reviews all research activities which involve human subjects for compliance with federal regulations and ethical standards. All human research conducted at, by, or under the auspices of this institution, whether funded or not, and whether conducted by the administrators, faculty, staff, or students, must be reviewed and approved before the research begins. The information available on this page is intended to guide you through the review process.
MSU's Federalwide Assurance number with OHRP is FWA00000203. MSU's DoD-Navy FWA Addendum number is DoD N-A3034.
The Human Research Protection Program strives to provide quality customer service and resources to the MSU research community. Please let us know if we can assist you in any way. We are constantly looking to refine our services to reduce unnecessary burden to the researcher.
