Research and Development Solutions (RADS) is registered under Office for Human Research Protection (OHRP) and has been formally designated to review, approve and monitor biomedical and behavioral research. We review health, employment, social and demographics research that involve human subjects.
The primary function or role of the IRB is to safeguard human subjects by training researchers in research ethics and best practices and reviewing research proposals. In reviewing a research protocol, the IRB balances the research’s risk to the human subjects with the benefits to society
The primary purpose of the IRB is to protect the rights and welfare of human subjects involved in research activities and look at proposed scientific methods to ensure the highest quality research.
We are responsible for encouraging research activities to benefit the advancement of knowledge of human conditions. At the same time, we assume responsibility for ensuring the conditions for protecting human subjects as required by the National Research Act, Public Law 93- 348 and implemented by U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). We require that information given to participants as part of informed consent is in accordance with appropriate laws, regulations, and international standards. The IRB may require that additional information be given to the participants when, in the IRB’s judgment, the information would meaningfully add to the protection of the rights and welfare of participants
We have the professional competence necessary to review the specific research activities presented. We have an effective knowledge of subject populations and other factors that can foreseeably contribute to the determination of a risk-benefit ratio to subjects and subjects’ informed consent. We are able to judge the adequacy and accuracy of the information on the informed consent document, advertising, and other materials distributed to the subjects.
