The Institutional Review Board (IRB) upholds the principles of the Belmont Report and guidelines for the protection of human subjects in research at the New York University School Medicine. We are committed to safeguarding and upholding the rights and welfare of all children, adolescents and adults who volunteer to participate in research.
The administrative office of the IRB facilitates the review process of human subject studies for the IRB. We provide professional guidance and support to the research community and help researchers navigate all of their study’s compliance requirements with exceptional knowledge and service.
IS YOUR ACTIVITY HUMAN SUBJECTS RESEARCH?
For guidance on determining whether your project is an activity that must be reviewed by the IRB or what level of review your activity may need - please follow the link below to the Office of Human Research Protection's Decisional Charts. There are 11 different graphic aides that can be used as a resource to help you determine what you will submit to the IRB.
OHRP DECISION CHARTS:
The IRB has revised the following forms and documents:
All forms and applications should be downloaded directly from this website - Do not store copies of forms on your local machine. Using an expired or out-of-date form may delay a timely review of your IRB submission.
Assent of Minor Forms
In the development of these new Assent of Minor forms the Institutional Review Board (IRB) Office has worked closely with IRB members and researchers who have specific expertise in working with children. The result is a more detailed Assent of Minor form. The new forms should be used in all research involving children/minors (those under the age of 18 in the State of New York). The child should be given a copy of the assent document to take home for reference. The IRB believes these new forms will not only enhance the assent process but also provide the child with important information to help that child make their decision. Additionally, the IRB strongly believes that asking a child for their signature and including the child in a formal assent process will give the child a feeling of respect and knowledge that their decision matters in the treatment of their condition. If you have any questions, please contact the IRB Office.
