Use of Human Subjects in Research (IRB)

Review and approval by the Lamar University Institutional Review Board (IRB) is required before starting research involving human subjects. The goal of the IRB is to ensure the safe and ethical treatment of research participants.

Beginning September 1, 2018 Lamar IRB will only accept CITI Human Subjects Training Education for all Lamar researchers. Click here to view the new training requirement
