The purpose of the IRB is to ensure that faculty and students who conduct research at La Salle University do so in a manner that is ethical and consistent with federal guidelines so that research participants and their rights are protected.
   
All researchers are required to submit completed research proposals and IRB application materials to La Salle University's IRB. This request refers to members of the La Salle Community and those from outside institutions who hope to use La Salle as a research setting and to obtain subjects for their investigations. Also, those students and faculty who plan to conduct research for course requirements or who intend to collect data from subjects and settings outside La Salle must also apply to the IRB for proposal review. Proposals may be exempt, expedited, or fully reviewed depending upon the nature of the research and the study design.
   
The purpose of this site is to provide faculty and students with information about the procedures for Institution Review Board approval to conduct human and animal research at La Salle University.
