UPDATED SEPTEMBER 19, 2021:

At present, all individuals on Cornell's campus--regardless of vaccination status--are required to wear a mask outside (when physical distancing cannot be maintained) and inside campus buildings (except in private, non-shared spaces, or when eating/drinking). As COVID-19 pandemic-related requirements on the Cornell Ithaca campuses are reevaluated and updated, the IRB and ORIA will continue to revise our human participant research-specific FAQs and guidance documents to reflect current guidelines. Thank you for your patience and cooperation, and please contact the IRB if you have any questions.
 

All research at Cornell that involves human participants must be either exempted from review or approved by the Institutional Review Board for Human Participants (IRB). The Cornell IRB office operates a Human Research Protection Program to protect the welfare of individuals who participate in research at the University.

For more information about IRB policies, federal regulations, training, and protocol submission procedures, visit Research with Human Participants.

Due to COVID-19 concerns, IRB Office Hours will be held via phone and email--not in person--for the foreseeable future.
