|The mission of the Air Force Research Laboratory's Institutional Review Board (IRB) is to facilitate excellence in human-performance and technological research that advances warfighting capabilities in air, space, and cyberspace by efficiently processing and professionally evaluating proposals for scientific validity and uncompromising protection of the rights and welfare of volunteer subjects.
Investigators should visit the Information Center Page (CAC required) to download submission templates and review processes for submission of protocols. They should also review applicable Regulations, including the most recent versions of AFI 40-102 Protection of Human Subjects and Adherence to Ethical Standards in Air Force Supported Research and AFRLI 40-102 Protection of Human Subjects in Research, both of which were substantially rewritten in the latter half of 2014.
All primary investigators, associate investigators, and other key personnel engaged in AFRL-supported human-subject research must have completed the AFRL-designated annual required training found on ADLS (for Government Civilians and Military Personnel) and every three years complete the modules hosted by the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI).
