Birmingham-Southern College Institutional Review Board

(Research Involving Human Subjects)

BSC has a responsibility to protect the welfare of human subjects, in research conducted at or sponsored in some part by the college. To that end, and in compliance with federal rules, the college has established an Institutional Review Board, or IRB, charged with reviewing all proposed research that would involve the use of human subjects.

If you are a member of the BSC community and intend to conduct research involving human subjects, you must, before the research commences, submit a Request for IRB Review and Approval via email to Dr. Lynne Trench. The request serves to provide the IRB with the information about your project that it needs to make a determination. Please use the following links to review IRB Rules and Procedures and a current IRB membership list.
