Protecting Human Subjects in Research at MetroHealth
Welcome to the MetroHealth IRB Homepage
The Institutional Review Board (IRB) is a federally mandated committee responsible for overseeing research involving human participants. The mission of the IRB is to protect the rights and welfare of research participants. To do so, the IRB relies on the ethical principles identified in the Belmont Report (respect for persons, beneficence, non-maleficence and justice) when reviewing research projects, along with applicable federal regulations. We have been AAHRPP accredited since 2007.
