Institutional Review Board

Chair's Message

IRB exists to foster and facilitate good and ethical research practice in NTU to achieve three objectives:

  • To protect the rights and welfare of all our volunteer research subjects.
  • To ensure that the conduct of our research serves interests of individuals, groups and/or society as a whole.
  • To ensure the highest ethical standards and compliance with regulations governing research, including management of risk, protection of confidentiality and the process of informed and voluntary consent.


As a world-class university, the Nanyang Technological University, Singapore upholds to the highest standards of research integrity. The NTU-IRB will be an instrument of the University to help all staff and students observe the highest standards of ethics and integrity in the conduct of their research.
