IRB Administration

Administered through the TTUHSC Research Integrity office, TTUHSC IRBs review research involving human subjects. All human research studies are reviewed by the IRB before they begin and throughout the project to evaluate risks to subjects and compliance with federal regulations and institutional policies.

TTUHSC has a Federal-Wide Assurance (FWA) # 00006767 with the Department of Health and Human Services to protect the rights and welfare of participants involved in research affiliated with this institution.

Two TTUHSC IRBs serve six campuses. For contact information, board membership, and submission deadlines select your campus below.


ALL PIs need to have a current, up-to-date, signed and dated curriculum vitae in the IRB records (per the IRB manual section 3.18.1).
