The Fredonia Institutional Review Board (IRB) (called the Human Subjects Review Committee) is charged with reviewing proposed research involving human subjects to ensure the protection of those subjects and compliance with federal regulations. Fredonia maintains that every member of the University community has the responsibility to ensure that research is conducted ethically and with rigorous compliance to standards and practices that will reassure public trust, safeguard the welfare of human subjects and promote scientific discovery.
In 1974, Congress passed the National Research Act creating the National Commission for the Protection of Human Subjects of Biomedical and Behavioral Research. The National Commission wrote the Ethical Principles and Guidelines for the Protection of Human Subjects of Research (commonly called the Belmont Report). Investigators assume the ultimate ethical responsibility for their work with human subjects.
