Institutional Review Board

The Francis Marion University Institutional Review Board (IRB) supervises the use of human subjects in all research conducted under the auspices of the University. All proposed research must be reviewed by the Board before any data is gathered. The IRB insures that the rights and welfare of human participants in research are protected.
