Weizmann Institute of Science policy requires that the Institutional Review Board approves ALL research involving human subjects that is performed by WIS investigators. 

Accordingly, IRB jurisdiction includes projects involving human tissues, blood, or images, and questionnaires, interviews, and other procedures performed as part of scientific research under the WIS umbrella.

IRB approval must be obtained before human subjects studies are begun. IRB policies and procedures, definitions, operational doctrine and criteria for acceptance of studies are provided in other segments of this website.
