CUNY IRB Process

Pursuant to CUNY’s commitment to protect human subjects, CUNY has established one or more panels each called the University Integrated Institutional Review Board. Each UI-IRB shall have responsibilities to review assigned human subject research in accordance with applicable federal regulations, State laws and CUNY policies and procedures. In addition, each UI-IRB shall be guided by the principles of the Belmont Report and the terms of CUNY’s Federalwide Assurance (FWA) for the Protection of Human Subjects with the US Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP).
