The AUIS IRB is a committee established to promote a culture of research through the ethical review of any research activity to be conducted within the institution. The IRB approves, requires modifications, and disapproves proposed research to ensure that the rights and welfare of human research participants are protected as prescribed by national and international regulations. The goal of the IRB is to help AUIS researchers and associated researchers advance knowledge, while maximizing beneficence for the participants, and recognizing and protecting the participants' autonomy to give consent.
Researchers must submit their applications to the AUIS IRB for review and approval. The IRB follows the review procedures contained in the AUIS IRB Guide and the AUIS IRB Process Flowchart, both of which can be found in the AUIS website, together with all relevant application documents.
