IRB stands for Institutional Review Board, and at UNT the IRB is part of the Office of Research and Innovation, located in Hurley Admin. Building, Room 210. The board is composed of UNT faculty and staff who apply federal regulations in the review of research involving humans. Your research plan may require review and approval if the plan includes human subjects. The IRB guides you through the process on the IRB Homepage and the IRB Guidelines page. Contact IRB or talk to your faculty advisor if you have questions.
Before starting a research study with humans, all investigators and other involved staff must go through federal training online. Each person must submit a certificate of completion to the IRB office. Check the UNT IRB webpage for the currently accepted training programs.
