NYUAD is committed to the integrity of its research activities. For research involving human subjects, NYUAD has adopted a Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) that describes the principles, organizational elements, and processes that ensure safety and welfare of human research participants.

At NYUAD, all research involving human subjects (funded or not funded) must be reviewed and approved by the University's Institutional Review Board (IRB) before being carried out. The IRB is authorized to review and approve research involving human subjects through an agreement with the US Department of Health and Human Services, Office for Human Research Protections called a Federalwide Assurance.

Review the Institutional Review Board Section to get started with the application process, including whether your proposed work requires review and approval. Investigators should keep in mind that it is NYUAD policy that all applicants (and faculty sponsors) to the IRB must take the CITI Certification Exam in order for the IRB to review their application.
