What research does the Saybrook IRB Review?

The Saybrook IRB reviews all research activities conducted by Saybrook faculty, staff,​ and student researchers, including student research proposals for a master's thesis or project, or a dissertation. The procedures we follow are mandated by​​​ federal law (Title 45, Code of Federal Regulations, Part 46​).  The Saybrook IRB reviews research plans to ensure these studies include safeguards to protect the rights and welfare of the participants who consent to take part in your research. ​​
