Johns Hopkins Libraries are hosting Love Data Week (February 12-16, 2024), an international celebration of data.
Who We Are
The Johns Hopkins University is committed to protecting the rights and welfare of individuals participating as subjects in research. All human participant research conducted under the auspices of the University is evaluated by an Institutional Review Board (IRB) to ensure that the rights and welfare of participants are fully protected. This site provides resources to help guide investigators through the HIRB application and review process. FWA #: FWA00005834Learn More
Who We Serve
The Homewood Institutional Review Board (HIRB) serves the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, Whiting School of Engineering, School of Education, Carey Business School, School of Advanced International Studies in Washington, DC, Bolonga, Italy, and Nanjing, China, and Peabody Institute. The HIRB also serves the University’s central functions including the Provost’s Office, Academic and Cultural Centers (ACCs) reporting to the Provost, Johns Hopkins University Research Administration (JHURA), and the Sheridan Libraries. HIRB is responsible for reviewing all research projects involving human participants conducted in these divisions. This policy applies to all faculty, staff, and student research projects, whether or not a project is funded and regardless of the location at which the research will be conducted.Learn More
