Human Subjects in Research at Brandeis

The Brandeis Committee for Protection of Human Subjects (BCPHS) is the Institutional Review Board (IRB) at Brandeis University.  As such, it is charged with reviewing all research involving human subjects conducted at Brandeis University or by a member of the Brandeis community, regardless of the funding source, to ensure that the research meets with federal, state, local, and institutional regulations.  Such research must be reviewed by the IRB prior to its beginning.  Brandeis' IRB does not grant retrospective IRB approval.
