Institutional Review Board

Welcome to the Belmont University Institutional Review Board (IRB) home on the web. If you're interested in doing research involving human subjects, you've come to the right place.


The IRB is an administrative committee established to provide ethical review and protection of the rights and welfare of human research subjects. The IRB is charged with reviewing all federally protected human studies conducted under the auspices of Belmont University.

All Belmont University faculty, staff and students proposing to conduct federally protected research involving human subjects must submit an application for IRB review and receive approval from the IRB before beginning any research.

To submit an application to the IRB the first step is to log in to our online application portal here: The institution ID is belmont and you will use your MyBelmont credentials to access the system.
