Associate Provost's Welcome

Welcome to the IRB website!

The IRB website is a valuable resource for students, faculty, staff, visiting scholars, or someone new to research involving human participants.  On the website, you will find all of the forms necessary for preparing a successful IRB application, including guidelines and policies.  Included on the site are links to other useful and interesting resources.

Please explore this comprehensive site, and if you have any questions, suggestions or ideas, contact Julie Paterson, LMU's Senior Compliance Coordinator at 310-258-5465 or via email at

Wishing you the best for success.
