Wayne State College

Institutional Review Board

Wayne State College HSIRB abides by the Code of Federal Regulations, Title 45: Public Welfare, developed under the Department of Health and Human Services division of the National Institutes of Health, Office for the Protection From Research Risks, Part 46: Protection of Human Subjects (July 19, 2018). This policy was developed as a guide to ethical research involving human subjects. The goal is to protect vulnerable individuals from unnecessary harm while maximizing the potential benefits resulting from research. It is the responsibility of all researchers to be knowledgeable of and follow Federal Guidelines for ethical research involving human subjects. Failure to do so not only compromises the integrity of the entire WSC community but may jeopardize federal funding for WSC.
