NC State IRB Mission

The mission of the NC State IRB office is to advocate for and protect human subjects participating in research through working with investigators in facilitating ethical and compliant research. The IRB values beneficence, justice, and respect for persons and operationalizes these values through practicing transparency, collaboration, education, and communication with researchers and participants.

What We Do and How We Do It

We review all proposed research through the lenses of ethics and compliance before it is implemented by NC State researchers. Our office maintains common sense administrative policies to promote the efficient and effective review of all proposed research involving humans. We educate and train others in practical ethics, legal compliance, and social justice as it relates to research with humans – including minimizing risks and maximizing benefits. We intervene, when necessary, in research to serve as a participant advocate and an accountability board.
