The Jewish Home Lifecare Institutional Review Board (IRB) is an independent ethics committee overseen by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (See Title 45 Part 46 of the Code of Federal Regulations).
The role of the IRB is to protect the rights and welfare of persons recruited to participate in research activities conducted under the auspices of Jewish Home Lifecare. The IRB has the authority to approve, require modifications, or disapprove all research activities that fall within its jurisdiction as specified by both the federal regulations and institutional policy.
Research that has been reviewed and approved by the IRB is subject to continuing IRB review and must be re-evaluated at least annually, or more frequently if specified by the IRB.
The committee is chaired by Dr. Simon Kassabian, the Associate Medical Director and the Director of Palliative care at Jewish Home Lifecare (JHL). We currently have 16 regular members and 9 alternates. For IRB Members Only
