Research Integrity

A key goal of the Office of Research is to ensure that research, scholarship and creative activities at SJSU are conducted safely, ethically and legally. The Office of Research facilitates the meeting of this goal by coordinating the University’s Institutional Review Board (IRB) and Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC).

Human Subjects Research: Institutional Review Board (IRB)

The IRB is a committee responsible for reviewing research proposals submitted by SJSU students, faculty, and staff that involve the use of human subjects.

Institutional Animal Care & Use Committee (IACUC)

The IACUC is a committee that is responsible for reviewing protocols by all individuals at SJSU and it's affiliated that are related to the humane care and use of animals and for addressing ethical concerns in discussions, evaluations and policy matters.
