IERB - Overview:

Institutional Ethics Review Board [IERB] is a body comprising of medical / scientific and / non-scientific members like Bio medical experts, scientific experts, statisticians, clinical research experts, legal experts, social workers and also lay persons, whose responsibility is to verify the protection of the rights, safety and well-being of human subjects involved in a study. The IERB review provides public reassurance by objectively, independently and impartially reviewing and approving the protocol based on ethical and scientific aspects, the suitability of the investigator(s), facilities, materials to be used for obtaining and documenting “Informed Consent” of the study subjects and adequacy of confidentiality safeguards.
