Institutional Review Board (IRB)

Institutional Review Board for the Protection of Human Subjects

The Institutional Review Board for the Protection of Human Subjects (IRB) is dedicated to the protection of human research subjects by fostering the ethical conduct of research at Lehman College and ensuring compliance with federal and state regulations pertaining to research with human beings. The IRB also provides education to researchers, and those acting in a supervisory or administrative capacity to researchers, to ensure that all research is conducted in an ethical manner, and to ensure that all research gets submitted to and approved by the IRB prior to the recruitment of any subjects. Finally, the IRB provides aid to researchers so that valuable human-subjects research can proceed in a safe and humane way that does not put subjects or research institutions at risk. This page contains information to help faculty, students, and staff learn about ethical principles of research with human participants and how to submit a protocol to IRB.

Questions or comments about the committees, submitting protocols, or the information contained in these pages can be directed to Dr. Patricia Ruiz-Navarro at, or by phone at 718-960-7870.

Note: IRB applications are to be filed through IRBManager, under the recommendation of access with their CUNY ID.
