Institutional Review Board
The FLCC Institutional Review Board (IRB) exists to assist individuals interested in doing human subjects research in ensuring ethical standards. A proposal must be submitted to the IRB at least two weeks prior to the start of any research. The majority of the research proposed at FLCC is exempt or expedited. Please refer to the Human Subject Regulations Decision Charts to determine if your project meets the exempt or expedited standards.
