The IRB Office is proud to offer a new resource: a narrated PowerPoint that gives a clear overview of the purpose and processes of IUP's IRB and guides researchers on how to prepare a protocol for IRB review.

This resource covers a brief history of human subjects research ethics, the role of the IRB, required components of an IRB protocol submission, and a helpful overview of IRBManager. It is intended to aid researchers as they prepare a research protocol, and we encourage instructors to share this guide with their students.

The PowerPoint presentation as well as a transcript of the narration are available on the IRB website.
