The IRB: An Introduction

Prepared by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, this slide deck offers an introduction to protecting research participants and the role of the Institutional Review Board (IRB). The document explains the justification for - and responsibilities of - an IRB, IRB functions and review requirements, and defines human research. While the document specifically addresses the Michigan program, the principles covered are applicable to virtually any IRB and lend themselves to incorporation into your own training programs.
