The Texas State Institutional Review Board (IRB) is charged with overseeing and evaluating all research involving human subjects. Use of human subjects by Texas State University faculty, staff, and students MUST be covered by a current protocol approval (or exemption) from the IRB.
If you are submitting your application for Expedited or Full IRB review, please save yourself time and trouble by preparing it according to the instructions. If your application does not contain the required elements, it will be returned for corrections instead of being forwarded for review. If you have questions or need assistance, please contact Szende Szabo Smith at 512-245-2314.
