The TUN Institutional Review Board (IRB) exists to provide protection for human subjects who participate in research. The main focus of the IRB is to review applications to identify the risks which may exist for potential research participants.
All studies that involve human subjects must apply for IRB approval or Exempt determination. Questions about the IRB application process or human subject research at TUN should be directed to TUN.IRB@tun.touro.edu or (702) 777-4784.
A Research Registration Form must be submitted for every research project affiliated with TUN, even if IRB approval is not required.
