Human Subjects Research at Cal Poly

Research Project Review

To ensure Cal Poly's commitment to protect human subjects in research, the University's Institutional Review Board (IRB), or Human Subjects Committee, evaluates research projects for compliance with ethical standards regarding the treatment of human subjects. See the Cal Poly Policy on Human Subjects in Research for an overview of the review process.
