Welcome

AAHRPP Accreditation BadgeThe Tufts Health Sciences Institutional Review Board (HS IRB) is federally mandated to review, monitor and approve biomedical and social, behavioral, and educational research. Our goal is to ensure that any research study under Tufts IRB jurisdiction is in compliance with federal, state, and institutional regulations. The Tufts Health Sciences IRB upholds the highest standards, ensuring compliance with ethical principles and regulatory requirements, while serving the Tufts community of scholars and administering a thorough review in a timely and efficient manner.

 

Tip of the Month

At continuing review, when a study is permanently closed to subject enrollment, you only need to submit supplemental documents that are applicable and require IRB approval for use moving forward. For example, if subjects are still receiving study drug, continue to submit Form 2 (Drug) and corresponding materials, and if questionnaires will still be used on active subjects, submit those. (You do not need to submit questionnaires that you are no longer using in the study.) However, if new subjects are no longer being recruited and enrolled, you no longer have to submit recruitment material.
