IRB Basics

The Radford University IRB is responsible for reviewing all human research for compliance with federally-mandated research guidelines and University policy. Review of human subjects research is required for funded or non-funded research and for research conducted by faculty, students, and all those under the purview of Radford University.

The Radford IRB does not review research involving the use of investigational drugs or devices and human subjects research.  

Radford University utilizes IRBManager online submission, workflow, and data management systems. IRBManager can be accessed under One Campus, using your Radford University email and password and searching for IRBManager/IRB Compliance.
