Activities Requiring Protocols
All research conducted by faculty, students and staff of MSU that involves human subjects must be approved by the Institutional Review Board. This requirement applies to unfunded research, research funded by the federal government, and research funded by other sources.
The Institutional Review Board will have authority to approve, require modifications in, or disapprove the covered human subject research. For a proposal to be approved, its benefits must outweigh the risks to the subjects, it must conform to the ethical principles in the Belmont Report and there must be appropriate methods for obtaining informed consent from the subjects.
Committee Mission Statement
The primary mission of the Institutional Review Board is the protection of the rights, welfare and wellbeing of human subjects who participate in research at Montana State University. We follow the ethical standards described in the Belmont Report, as well as all applicable federal, state and local regulations. In addition to those regulations, we abide by university policies and procedures.
