Institutional Review Board
The mission of the Office of the Institutional Review Board is to facilitate and promote the ethical conduct of research with human subjects at the North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System.
The Office of the Institutional Review Board (OIRB) is the administrative body that oversees the conduct of research involving human subjects at the Health System.
Our mission is to protect the rights and welfare of participants in human research. We support, facilitate and promote the ethical conduct of research involving humans.
We administer two IRB committees that review, approve and monitor biomedical and behavioral human research. We offer services in support of clinical research and compliance with federal,state, and institutional regulations governing human subject protections.
Our IRB committees are comprised of people with diverse clinical and professional expertise from across the Health System. Representatives from the lay community also play an important role in ensuring that the rights and welfare of the communities served by the Health System are respected and maintained.
We can provide you with:
- What you need to know about human subjects research and what you need to consider when developing your research proposals.
- Information you need to conduct your research and remain in compliance.
- Ongoing education on human subject research issues through workshops, seminars, conferences, newsletters and computer based training.
Programs can be customized to meet individual and departmental needs.
Case managers have been assigned to assist specific departments.
