The function of the IRB is to protect the safety, welfare, rights, and privacy of all participants in human subjects research that proceeds under the guidance of faculty, staff, and students on our campus. The purpose of the Illinois Wesleyan University IRB is to assure that all human subject research conform to Federal regulations. Our Policy and Procedures derive from the ethical principles issued by the National Commission for the Protection of Human Subjects of Biomedical and Behavioral Research in 1979.
