Guide to IRB Application Process

As mandated by our Federal Wide Assurance with the federal government (45 CFR 46) and TAMU System Policy 15.99.01, all research projects involving human subjects, conducted by Texas A&M International University (or other agency of The Texas A&M International University) faculty, employees, graduate students, undergraduate students or postdoctoral fellows or using members of the Texas A&M International University Community as subjects (regardless of the source of funding), must be approved by the University’s Institutional Review Board (IRB). Any outside agency performing research using Texas A&M International University facilities and using members of the Texas A&M International University community will first seek approval of the Texas A&M International University IRB.

The guiding principles for such research are based on The Belmont Report-Ethical Principles and Guidelines for the Protection of Human Subjects of Research (National Commission for the Protection of Human Subjects of Biomedical and Behavioral Research, April 18, 1979).

 

 changes coming soon to human subject regulations

 The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and 16 other federal departments and agencies are implementing a revised rule on Federal Policy for Protection of Human Subjects (also known as the Common Rule) that will become effective January 21, 2019.
