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.
