The Seattle University IRB

We provide support, services, resources and oversight to faculty, staff and students who engage in research.

The Institutional Review Board and Office of Research Oversight

We ensure institutional compliance with federal and state regulations, as well as university policies. The IRB is registered with the U.S. Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP) and the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS). Its Federal Wide Assurance (FWA) has been approved by the OHRP.

Office of Human Research Protections

The OHRP, within the Department of Health and Human Services, is the federal authority that issues guidance on the welfare and protections of individuals involved in human subjects research. The OHRP is also the authority with whom U.S. institutions register their IRBs and obtain their FWAs.
