The Touro College Health Sciences Institutional Review Board (IRB) has been active since 1990, and its jurisdiction currently includes all human subject research at the School of Health Sciences, the Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine, and the Touro College of Pharmacy.
Its purpose is to protect the rights and welfare of human subjects involved in research activities. Researchers are required to apply for IRB approval for research involving human subjects. The IRB is mandated to evaluate all human subject research activities that fall within its jurisdiction as specified by local, state, and federal regulations. No human research activity can proceed without the approval of the committee. These activities must also be in compliance with Touro College policy, regardless of whether the research is conducted by faculty investigators or students.
