Institutional Review Board


一道本不卡免费高清Jacksonville University recognizes that an Institutional Review Board is an indispensable body regarding oversight of research activities undertaken by its faculty, staff, and students. As research activities often involve the potential for abuse of a subject's autonomy and / or privacy rights, Jacksonville University has developed this board to ensure that the rights of all research subjects are protected. All research that involves human subjects, tissues/specimens, data/records, or surveys requires review and approval from the IRB. Researchers may not collect data from human subjects until after IRB approval has been obtained.

JU's IRB is maintained according to its Standard Operating Procedures, and in compliance with ("The Common Rule") and the . The Office of Research & Sponsored Programs provides administrative support to the JU IRB, and helps to facilitate the review process for submissions. 

For instructions on how to submit a research proposal to the JU IRB, please see the resources below.

一道本不卡免费高清Please Note: For industry-sponsored clinical trials, the JU IRB requires investigators to use an external IRB for all protocol reviews, amendments and continuing reviews. JU has partnered with Western IRB for all externally funded clinical trials, and WIRB submissions may be made directly through IRBNet.  The study sponsor is responsible for the cost of the WIRB services, and these costs may be built into in the sponsored research agreement with the University. In the event a sponsor will not pay for the WIRB services, the college will be responsible for the cost.

Forms and Guidance

Each IRB submission must have certain forms and documents included in the submission in order to meet the requirements for approval. The goal of these forms is to gather all the necessary information for the IRB to make an informed decision about the level of risk of the project. The forms also seek to anticipate the questions of the IRB reviewers looking at the project. Even if the answers to the forms can be found in a larger research proposal document, the JU IRB requires that all investigators use the prescribed forms in order to streamline the review process.

一道本不卡免费高清The required forms for each project will vary based on the project design, though most every project will require a Protocol-Application (called the "Pro-App"), an Informed Consent Template, the Investigator Assurances page, and a data table outlining all the data points that will be collected. Any submissions with more than one investigator will require a Research Team Attachment. Student Investigators must have their faculty mentor complete the required forms and sign off on them. If you have any questions about which forms need to be included in your submission, please contact the IRB Administrator.

The most current versions of the forms are available in the Forms and Template Library on IRBNet. To access these forms, log into IRBNet or create an account.
