Institutional Review Board

The Institutional Review Board (IRB) is responsible for reviewing all NU research involving human subjects, including research conducted off campus by NU faculty or students. All human subjects research projects must be approved or exempted by the IRB before the research can begin.

The menu to the left provides information commonly requested by researchers, including the application form. All IRB submissions are to be done electronically to If you have other needs or questions, please feel free to contact the IRB chairperson, Dr. Paul Schupp, at 716.286.8335.

We look forward to working with you to ensure NU maintains the highest standards in research integrity.
