Human Subjects Committee


Institutional Review Board

Effective July 1, 2015, review of human subjects research at all eight IU campuses is facilitated by the IU Human Subjects Office (HSO).  All submissions to the IRB are made via KC IRB, the web-based system for entry and management of IRB submissions. 

For information regarding IRB policies and procedures, submission requirements, and contact information, please visit the IU Human Subjects Office website.

Investigators working with the HSO for the first time are encouraged to review the Introduction to HSO.

For questions about research with human subjects or the IRB process, please contact HSO or the IU Northwest research liaison:
