Research Ethics Committees
Grinnell’s IRB reviews proposed research projects that use human research participants. Any faculty, staff, or student conducting research on humans, even with minimal risk, needs to submit a proposal of the research project to the IRB. Electronic submission of proposals is expected; the form and well-written project description are emailed to irb[at]grinnell[dot]edu. Please allow up to 10 days for a new submission to be reviewed and a decision rendered.
