About the Institutional Review Boards

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Please visit our Important News and Updates page for information regarding human subjects research during the COVID-19 situation.

An Institutional Review Board (IRB) is a federally mandated panel that is charged with safeguarding the rights and welfare of human subjects in research.  At Georgia Tech, the Central IRB reviews most human subject research activities, while the Joint Center for Advanced Brain Imaging (CABI) IRB reviews research activities of the CABI, which is a joint collaboration between Georgia State University and Georgia Tech.  More information about the two IRB Committees can be found on our IRBs at Georgia Tech page.

For more information in regards to specific IRB requirements and instructions for how to submit to the IRB, please see our Submitting a Protocol page.  Please CLICK HERE to see a flowchart of the IRB Review Process.
