Social/Behavioral Science Institutional Review Board (CWRU IRB)


The Case Western Reserve University Social/Behavioral Institutional Review Board reviews non-medical research, such as social science and behavioral research involving non-patient populations, students, and members of the community.

Additional Information


The Office of Research Administration has implemented iRIS, an electronic protocol submission and processing system that has digitized CWRU's Social/Behavioral and Educational Research Institutional Review Board (SBER IRB) and CWRU's Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC). iRIS improves business processes, submission efficiency, and review and renewal of IRB and IBC studies.
