Institutional Review Board (IRB)
The CEERI Institutional Review Board (IRB) reviews all human subject research conducted at all participating and affiliated research centers. The primary mission of the CEERI IRB is to ensure the protection of rights, privacy and welfare of all human subjects volunteering to participate in clinical studies. The IRB reviews study protocols and determines whether to allow participation in the study. The IRB has authority to change elements of the study design and process guided by ICH and GCP regulations.
CEERI’s IRB is also known as an Independent Ethics Committee (IEC) or Ethical Review Board (ERB) as named by some international bodies or countries. The IRB/ERB has the responsibility to approve, monitor, and review biomedical and behavioral research involving humans with the aim to protect the rights and welfare of the research subjects. Our IRB can approve, require modifications in or disapprove clinical studies.
