The Institutional Review Board for the Protection of the Human Subjects is the regulatory body of IUP that is responsible for the review of research that involves human participants. The purpose of IRBs nationally is to protect participants in research as well as to protect researchers conducting research involving human participants.
The information below is designed to provide a comprehensive set of resources for investigators, so that they can conduct the best possible research that meets their academic goals while safeguarding the well-being of the people who participate in their work.

The IRB at IUP is engaged in ongoing efforts to collaborate with investigators to enhance the responsiveness of IRB educational and consultative efforts.
IRBManager is IUP’s new electronic submission, routing, approval, and record-keeping tool for the Institutional Review Board. This system retains the same questions from the original paper forms, but presents them in an easy to use and easy to track electronic system.
All IUP researchers are encouraged to begin using this platform immediately. The IRB will cease to accept any paper forms or applications, including requests for modification or continuing review, at midnight on April 2.
