Institutional Review Board (IRB) - AAUP

One of the strategic priorities of the Arab American University (AAUP) is scientific research, which is regarded as one of the main missions of the university. Since distinguished scientific research contributes to solving some problems of the society, AAUP is unceasingly endeavoring to fulfill the highest standards of the scientific research and excel at various fields of knowledge while adhering to the ethics of scientific research. To accomplish this purpose, the university formed an Institutional Review Board (IRB).

 

The Institutional Review Board’s Vision

The board aims to safeguard the rights of the researchers and supervisors in the scientific research, and protect the rights and welfare of those participating as subjects in the research.

 

The Institutional Review Board Responsibilities

This board is designated to: 

  • Monitor the ethics of scientific research in terms of values, honesty, integrity, justice, equality, and objectivity. 
  • Monitor the commitment of the researchers to the ethics of scientific research for both research and experiments on living creatures.  
  • Maintain the safety of the researchers and research participants. 
  •  Apply bio-safety standards, and protect the environment. 
  • Assure the commitment of the university administration, faculty members, technicians, students, and staff to these ethics. 
  • Cooperate with other IRBs at research centers at both local and international levels. 
  • Preserve the rights of all parties involved in the research and experiments that are conducted on humans and animals.
