​Welcome to Research Protections!

The Research Protections section of the Office of Research Services is responsible for the administrative oversight of and providing administrative support for three committees: Institutional Review Board (IRB), Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC), and Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC).

Our staff is here to help guide you through the submission and review processes for these committees. If you have any questions or concerns, or would like to meet with a staff member, please feel free to contact us.
