Institutional Review Board
NTU-IRB was established to meet international standards and expectations in order to protect human subjects involved in research studies by maintaining the highest levels of research ethics and integrity within NTU. The IRB also helps to support researchers and to improve the quality of research through peer review, thereby safeguarding the standing of the institution. NTU-IRB will conduct ethical reviews on all research proposals involving human research participants, including the use of their personal data and/or human biological materials.
Singapore has enacted the Human Biomedical Research Act (HBRA) to regulate human biomedical research and the handling of human tissues for use in research. NTU as a research institution is fully compliant with the Act. For more information on MOH Guidelines on HBRA - please click here.
