Ethics and Review Board

The AUA Institutional Ethics Review Committee (IERC) is committed to advancing high-quality research. It seeks to establish a culture of research ethics among students, staff, and collaborators, with respect to human participants. In recognition that research abuses occur, sometimes unintentionally and sometimes intentionally, the AUA IERC is the overarching Committee responsible for the ethical review of all research proposals submitted by AUA students, staff, or external investigators involving human participants and personal data. The role of the AUA IERC is to safeguard the dignity, safety, rights, autonomy, privacy, beneficence, justice, health, and well-being of research participants.

The AUA-IERC’s Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) outline policies and procedures related to the ethics review process.
