Institutional Review Board (IRB)

In compliance with federal regulations (45 CFR 46) and the University's OHRP-issued Federal-wide Assurance, Lincoln Memorial University’s Institutional Review Board must review all projects involving human subjects. The chairperson or one or more IRB members designated by the chairperson may determine one of three actions: exempt, expedited review or full board review.  All projects that do not qualify for exempt or expedited review will undergo full board review.
