Institutional Review Board (IRB)
The function of the IRB is to protect the safety, welfare, rights, and privacy of all participants in human subjects research that proceeds under the guidance of faculty, staff, and students on our campus. The purpose of the Institutional Review Board (IRB) of Skidmore College is to assure that all human subject research associated with the College conform to our Federal Wide Assurance and related New York State regulations. Our Policy and Procedures derive from the ethical principles that were first articulated in the Belmont Report issued by the National Commission for the Protection of Human Subjects of Biomedical and Behavioral Research in 1979.
