Institutional Review Board

The Institutional Review Board (IRB) at FCHS bears the duty of scrutinizing all research involving human participants conducted by the institution prior to its commencement.

The primary mission of the IRB is to meticulously evaluate and supervise research endeavors, with a steadfast commitment to upholding the principles of research ethics safeguarding the rights and well-being of human research subjects.

The IRB functions centrally under the auspices of the Research Department and convenes semi-annually to deliberate on research projects.
