Human and Animal Protections
Human and Animal Protections at San Francisco State University supports the work of the Institutional Review Board (IRB) and the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC).
The IRB and the IACUC are charged with protecting the safety and welfare of humans and animals used in research at or in conjunction with this university. The committees do not expect research to be free from risk, but do expect the investigator to be aware of the risks, to minimize risk when possible, and to take appropriate precautions whenever necessary.
