The Institutional Review Board for the Protection of Human Subjects (IRB) ensures clients or employees of the Cabinet involved in research as subjects are adequately protected. The IRB also protects subjects of research conducted, supported, endorsed, approved or sponsored by the Cabinet, including research conducted by individuals, students, employees, professors, universities, for-profit institutions, non-profit institutions, government agencies or other entities.

Protecting the safety and welfare of research subjects involves prevention of physical, emotional and psychological harm that might result from the research activity, as well as any harm due to breach of confidentiality, including unauthorized disclosure of health information protected under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act.
