Institutional Review Board

The Jefferson College Institutional Review Board (IRB) is a panel authorized by the Jefferson College Board of Trustees to review potential research projects at Jefferson College involving human subjects. The statutory foundations for the IRB are 45 CFR 46 and 21 CFR 56. IRBs exist in order to protect the rights and welfare of human subjects involved in research, whether medical, psychological or academic.

Any individuals interested in conducting research at Jefferson College which will involve human subjects must submit a Research Proposal Form.

In accordance with 45 CFR 46.112, once approved by the IRB, final determination of research approval at Jefferson College rests with the Jefferson College Administrative Team.

Questions about the IRB process may be directed to Dr. Michael Booker at mbooker@jeffco.edu or 636-481-3312.
