Institutional Review Board

The Pace Institutional Review Board (IRB) is charged with review of proposed human research protocols in order to ensure that the rights of participants are protected and that risk of harm is minimized. The framework for the protection of human participants is set in Federal regulation and the Belmont Report. Board members provide ethical review of human research and help ensure compliance with Pace University policies and procedures, federal regulations, and state and local laws.

The Pace Institutional Review Board (IRB) operates according to the requirements in Sections 5, 6, and 7 of the ‘HRPP Policies and Procedures’ document.
