Human Subjects Approval Process

The University has policies and procedures in place to ensure that individuals conducting research, including graduate students, comply with applicable federal regulations and/or state laws governing the use of human subjects, the care and use of animals, significant financial interest disclosure, scientific misconduct, intellectual property and copyrights. If your research is affected by any of the above, you must obtain University approval prior to initiating the research by submitting an Application for IRB Review. Further information and application materials for institutional review and research are available from the Office of Grants and Research Development, Showalter Hall 210B. The office can also be reached by phone at 509.359.6567 or by email at An approved IRB must be on file with Graduate Studies before you can begin your research. A lack of an IRB can invalidate research.
