The Institutional Review Board for the Protection of Research Participants

Scientists, physicians, other health care professionals, attorneys, clergy, and members of the Grenada community serve as members of the Institutional Review Board (IRB) at St. George’s University. As its mission, the members state that “the IRB exists to ensure that all human research proposed under the auspices of St. George’s University or referred to the IRB for review is conducted according to the highest ethical standards. It is the vision of the St. George’s University Institutional Review Board that investigators are provided with a thorough and timely review of their research proposals, and human participants in research are assured that all research is conducted in a compassionate, ethical, and accountable manner. We envision the facilitation and support of research and the education of investigators and participants in ethical research principles.”
