The Virginia Western IRB is accountable to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Human Research Protections for the oversight of all human subject research to ensure the ethical treatment of all human subjects. Virginia Western’s IRB must review and approve any funded or non-funded research related to human subjects whether or not it is funded internally or externally by private or government funds if the research is
- sponsored by Virginia Western;
- performed by or involves VWCC faculty, staff and/or students regardless of where the study is performed; or
- conducted using College-owned facilities or equipment.
Research covered by this policy that has been approved by an IRB may be subject to further appropriate review and approval or disapproval by officials of the institution. However, those officials may not approve the research if it has not been approved by an IRB.
