Every IRB is unique. Every study is unique. However, there are a couple of things to keep in mind that all IRBs look for across studies:

  • The research is sound ethically not introducing too great of risks.
  • The benefits outweigh risks (risks must be short-term weighed not long term).
  • If vulnerable populations like pregnant women, children or women are involved then additional safeguards have been taken.
