Research Involving Human Subjects

University Committee on Activities Involving Human Subjects (UCAIHS)

  • At NYU, 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 UCAIHS, which serves as NYU's IRB for Washington Square units, is authorized by the federal government to review and approve research involving human subjects. Their site will help you:

    • Determine if your work must be reviewed and approved by the UCAIHS;
    • Understand federal regulations and NYU policies concerning human subjects in research;
    • Prepare an application for review and approval to the UCAIHS;
    • Respond to any concerns or requested revisions the UCAIHS may request after the initial review.
