Furman University Institutional Review Board  

**URGENT INFORMATION**

IRB applications will not be accepted starting June 20, 2014 through Labor Day. This includes new and renewal applications. Please see the calendar for additional information.

Furman University is dedicated to the protection of both the rights and welfare of volunteer human subjects engaged in research endeavors under the auspices of the university.  The university has entered into an agreement with the Office for Human Research Protocol (OHRP) termed the IRB Registration and Federal Wide Assurance (FWA) program, pledging compliance with the “Common Rule” for federally supported research.  Furman University will apply this Assurance to all research using human subjects, irrespective of the funds or guidance of the research.  To this end, the university has established an Institutional Review Board for Proposed Research Involving Human Subjects, referred to as the IRB. Guidelines are adopted from those guidelines detailed in the IRB guidebook by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Office for Human Research Protections.
