If your project is considered research and it uses information from human subjects, it should be reviewed by an IRB. If your research uses data from KDHE collected on human subjects or is funded in any part by KDHE and involves human subjects, then it should be reviewed by the KDHE IRB.
The KDHE IRB meets quarterly in Topeka, Kansas. Please email the IRB Chairperson for the date and time of the next meeting. Each project that needs full review by the KDHE IRB must submit required paperwork no less than two weeks before a scheduled IRB meeting. A representative from the project should also plan to attend the quarterly meeting to give a brief overview of the project and answer any questions. If travel to Topeka presents an undue burden, please contact the IRB Chairperson.
The KDHE IRB has at least five members of varying backgrounds in order to provide a complete and adequate review of human research and its institutional, legal, scientific, and social implications. The Board also includes at least one member who is not affiliated with KDHE and one member who is not a scientist.
