ASER IRB Program


What is IRB?

IRB (Institutional Review Board) is an independent committee set up to protecting the rights and welfare of human research subjects recruited to participate in research studies. The committee assures that the study complies with the scientific and ethical standards. In order to help research staff understand the condition of subjects and human rights, IRB includes medical personnel, social justice, legal experts, and representatives of local organizations, non-governmental group, and non-medical professionals.
