Institutional Review Board

Institutional Review Board


The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health is committed to protecting the rights and welfare of all individuals who participate as subjects in research.  The School has two on-site Institutional Review Boards (IRB X and IRB FC) and an external IRB (the Western IRB) that reviews certain studies on our behalf. It is the responsibility of faculty and students to ensure that formal IRB approval is obtained before initiating contact with human subjects in any research project.
