Limestone's IRB was developed in the Spring of 2009.    It was officially registered with the DHHS/OHRP on October 14, 2019 (under Limestone College).  Today it serves students in the undergraduate program, Professors, and off-campus graduate students.

Research proposals may be submitted at any time. Please be careful to submit your consent form, debriefing statement, and any tests or surveys that may be used.   The completed application goes to the IRB chair, who then distributes it to the whole IRB.  Please be sure to answer any questions from the chair right away. The whole reading and approval process should take 7-10 days.
