Genetic Alliance’s work is overseen by six health professionals and researchers, who comprise our Institutional Review Board. These individuals are not directly involved in our research, and serve as objective judges of the potential benefits and harms of proposed projects and studies. The IRB has been formally designated to approve, monitor, and review biomedical and behavioral research involving human beings. Our IRB exists to ensure that the appropriate steps are taken to protect the rights and welfare of the people participating in our research and studies. In order to protect participants, the board assesses the ethics of our methods by putting our processes through a series of regulations prior to initiation. They ensure that individuals voluntarily participate by deeming prospective subjects capable of making such choices for themselves (or receiving permission from an apt proxy).
