The Social, Behavioral & Educational Research Institutional Review Board (SBER IRB) is a panel of Tufts' faculty, staff, and community members that reviews all human subject research to ensure the safety and welfare of research participants. The IRB ensures that any research study under its jurisdiction is in compliance with federal, state, and institutional regulations. Only the IRB has the authority to approve human subject research.
The IRB is committed to helping promote research among students, faculty, and staff at Tufts University. Please contact the SBER IRB Office with questions regarding IRB proposals, using eIRB, the review process, and any other information needed.
The IRB is ELECTRONIC!
