The Institutional Review Board (IRB) performs critical oversight functions for research conducted on human subjects.
The committee is formally designated to review and monitor research protocols involving varying degrees of humans as research subjects.
It is charged with the responsibility and authority of approving, requiring modification in, halting unapproved or non-compliant research, periodically monitoring the progress of long-term records, or disapproving all research activities involving human subjects that fall within its jurisdiction.
The IRB at Nebraska Methodist College is an appropriately constituted administrative body established to protect the rights and welfare of human subjects recruited to participate in research activities.
Please direct all questions about the IRB, IRB Application Process, or research study ideas to IRB@methodistcollege.edu or call 402-354-7116 (ask for the IRB chair)
NMC and its IRB are guided by the ethical principles regarding all research involving humans as subjects as set forth in the report of the National Commission for the Protection of Human Subjects of Biomedical and Behavioral Research entitled, "Ethical Principles and Guidelines for the Protection of Human Subjects of Research," a.k.a., the "Belmont Report." See the NMC IRB Policy Manual. In addition, the requirements set forth in Title 45, Part 46 of the Code of Federal Regulations (the "Common Rule") will be met for all applicable HHS-supported research.
