Welcome to the University of the District of Columbia Institutional Review Board

The University of the District of Columbia Institutional Review Board’s mission (UDC IRB) is to protect the rights and welfare of human participants recruited to participate in research activities conducted under the auspices of UDC.  This site explains the responsibilities of the researcher, the IRB and the IRB’s processes and procedures.

The UDC IRB has registered with DHHS Office of Human Research Protections (IRB #00003641) and has filed an assurance with DHHS called the Federalwide Assurance (FWA #00013788), that the University will comply with these regulations and ethical principles.
