SBE 2020: Submission Detail

ID Number: 43
Title: White Paper: Institutional Review Boards
Lead Author: Kramer, Michael W.
Abstract: Institutional Review Boards are a critical component of any university research program involving human subjects in the humanities, social sciences, or medical fields. Although a fair amount has been written either attacking or defending IRBs, there has been little systematic examination of the nature of the interactions within IRBs or between campus IRBs and researchers to understand how IRBs and researchers operate and how the research process might be improved while still protecting human subjects as required by the law. This white paper proposes there is a need to examine both the interactions within IRBs including their compliance officers and staff and the interactions between IRBs and researchers to promote and improve the quality of research in the coming decades regardless of the particular subject area.
