Human Subjects - IRB
The University of Texas at Arlington, by action of the President, has established an Institutional Review Board (IRB) to review human subject research. This board is supported by Regulatory Services. The IRB reviews all research involving human subjects that is conducted or supported by the University of Texas at Arlington faculty, students or staff in order to determine that the rights and welfare of the human subjects are adequately protected. The IRB is guided by the ethical principles described in the 'Belmont Report' and by the regulations of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services found at Title 45 Code of Federal Regulations, Part 46. The University of Texas at Arlington maintains an approved Federalwide Assurance (FWA) of Compliance with the Office for Human Research Protection (OHRP).
