Fordham University is committed to assuring the protection of all human subjects who participate in research, as well as the safety of researchers. To this end, the Institutional Review Board (IRB) must review all research for human subjects compliance. This is true whether you are a member of faculty, staff, or a student, regardless of the location where the research is conducted, and regardless of any funding that may be involved. To comply with University requirements for IRB review, researchers must submit a protocol review form to the Office of the Institutional Review Board prior to conducting their research. Please visit our forms page and do not hesitate to email us with any questions you may have to
