Chair's Introduction and Welcome
At Loyola Marymount University, we understand that with excellence in research and scholarship comes a commitment to safeguarding the rights and welfare of all human subjects participating in research. The LMU Institutional Review Board strives to assure compliance with governmental regulations as specified by the Office of Human Research Protections (US Department of Health and Human Services) and the Committee for the Protection of Human Subjects (California Health and Human Services Agency). As such, the LMU IRB welcomes from faculty, staff, and students, research proposals involving human subjects.
Please explore the LMU IRB website. It is an excellent resource for senior, junior, and would-be researchers alike.
