IRB is the acronym for Institutional Review Board. CIAT upholds the ​highest standards in the ethical conduct of research, including the protection of human subjects, enabling its staff to conduct research in a timely and efficient manner. CIAT is required to establish an IRB to review all research that directly or indirectly involves human participants under the policy of Protection of Human Subjects of Research. The IRB has the authority to review, approve, disapprove or require changes in research or related activities involving human participants. The IRB’s primary role is to ensure the protection of human participants as subjects of research at CIAT.
