About the Institutional Review Boards

An Institutional Review Board (IRB) is a federally mandated panel that is charged with safeguarding the rights and welfare of human subjects in research.  At Georgia Tech, the Central IRB reviews most human subject research activities, while the Joint Center for Advanced Brain Imaging (CABI) IRB reviews research activities of the CABI, which is a joint collaboration between Georgia State University and Georgia Tech.
