The Health Sciences and Behavioral Sciences Institutional Review Board (HU-IRB) reviews research projects which involve human subjects. The primary goal of the IRB is to protect the rights and welfare of human research subjects recruited to participate in research activities conducted under the auspices of the Hashemite University.

All human and subject research conducted by faculty, staff, and students of the University must receive IRB review and approval prior to commencement. The Institutional Review Board does also review research involving animal subjects.

With representation from a wide range of scientific disciplines and from outside the academic community, the IRB gives rapid but individualized attention to the numerous research projects at the University.
