Institutional Research Board

All research conducted at or sponsored by Duquesne University that involves human subjects must be approved by the IRB before research begins and, when necessary, reviewed periodically during the course of the project. All key personnel engaged in human subjects research must complete the online CITI training program prior to IRB approval of a new or continuing review application. Information is available from the office of the Chair of the IRB, Dr. David Delmonico, x4032

National Fellowships
