Welcome to the newly designed IRB website!

As a Seattle University researcher, you must submit any project proposal involving human subjects as participants to the SU Institutional Review Board (IRB) to comply with SU policy and Federal regulations. The IRB will review the project to assess physical, psychological, legal, and/or social risks to research participants. Through this review process, the IRB will help you minimize risks for participants by establishing protections reflecting best practices in human subjects research and University policies. The IRB also seeks to protect researchers and the University through appropriate design of research studies to comply with Federal regulations and SU requirements. 

If you have questions about the IRB process or your specific protocol, please contact us at 206-296-2585 or irb@seattleu.edu
