Institutional Review Board

NOVA’s Institutional Review Board (IRB):

  1. Provides all community members with information, guidance, forms, and related materials needed to secure IRB approval for purposes of conducting human subjects research.
  2. Reviews requests for human subjects research to be conducted by NOVA-affiliated researchers and makes decisions regarding such requests. Decisions may include approval or denial of research requests, as well as required modification of research protocols.

Please contact the Office of Institutional Research with IRB-related questions and requests.
