Drexel Institutional Review Boards
Drexel University has three IRBs on site supported by faculty and staff members as well as representatives from the local community. The Drexel University IRBs have specialized areas of review; IRB #1 Adult Medical, IRB #3 Adult Social/Behavioral and IRB #4 Pediatric Medical Human research protocols. Protocols seeking committee approval may be internally or externally designed and funded. Within our website you find the necessary forms and instruction to assist you in applying to the Drexel IRBs as well as guidance to conducting human research in a manner that promotes protection of human subjects.
Investigators who plan to conduct industry sponsored multicenter clinical trials will apply to the Western Institutional Review Board (WIRB). Applications of this nature are submitted via the Human Research Protection Program and not directly to the WIRB.
