Welcome

The Institutional Review Board (IRB) at Nova Southeastern University is a unit under the direction of the Vice President for Institutional Effectiveness and leads the university's human subject protection program. The IRB reviews research submissions from NSU research community to ensure they adhere to basic ethical principles underlying the acceptable conduct of research involving human subjects. This website was created as a resource for the research community regarding the IRB process.

Nova Southeastern University encourages the conduct of research in the various colleges and in collaboration with other educational institutions, agencies, and organizations. While respecting the right of faculty to full academic freedom in research, the university is firmly committed to adhering to basic ethical principles underlying the acceptable conduct of research involving human subjects.

The Institutional Review Board has launched an electronic submission system, to review information regarding using this new system, please click below:

Listserv

The Nova Southeastern University Institutional Review Board has created an IRB ListServ to communicate directly with the entire research community. The IRB Listerv will announce new or updated policies, procedures, or forms, request volunteers and researcher input on future IRB projects and provide timely updates on new regulatory information.
