Other NYU School of Medicine Review Boards
An institutional review board (IRB) is just one review board that investigators may work with while conducting research at NYU School of Medicine. Depending on the nature of your clinical trial or research study, you may also need to submit your protocol to other review boards to ensure that it meets the necessary regulations.
Protocol Review and Monitoring Committee
All cancer-related protocols must be reviewed by the Protocol Review and Monitoring Committee, also known as the PRMC. The Clinical Trials Support Unit provides administrative support for the PRMC. For further information, email email@example.com.
Research Conflicts of Interest Committee
All conflicts of interest in research are reviewed by the Conflicts of Interest Management Unit. Conflicts of interest considered significant are reviewed by the Research Conflicts of Interest Committee. For more information, please log into webpage of the Conflicts of Interest Management Unit using your Kerberos ID. Contact the unit at 212-404-4079.
Two policies cover conflicts of interest:
- Policy on Conflicts of Interest in Research and Sponsored Programs replaces the Investigator Financial Interest Disclosure and Conflict of Interest Policy dated October 1, 1995. This policy applies to all investigators participating in sponsored research conducted at or under the auspices of NYU School of Medicine and NYU Langone.
- Policy on Institutional Conflicts of Interest in Human Subjects Research applies to financial interests that NYU School of Medicine or NYU Langone may have in human subjects research being conducted at the institution.
Radiation Safety Office
The Radiation Safety Office is based at NYU School of Medicine but serves as an institutional resource for all of NYU and for NYU Langone, NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue, and VA NY Harbor Health Care System.
The department seeks to assist researchers in achieving their educational, research, and clinical goals while ensuring safety and compliance with the many regulations associated with the use of radioactive materials and machine sources of ionizing radiation.
The department negotiates and holds various licenses and registrations that authorize the use of radiation sources at the locations under its jurisdiction and acts as an interface with associated agencies. It implements a radiation safety program, under the oversight of local radiation safety committees within the various locations, and provides support services.
The Radiation Safety Office is located at NYU School of Medicine in Medical Science Building G58 (opposite the student cafeteria). Its hours are 9:00AM to 5:00PM, Monday through Friday. If you would like to reach director Steven R. Wagner, MS, DABR, call the office at 212-263-6888.

Institutional Biosafety Committee
All research that involves recombinant DNA (rDNA) molecules must be in compliance with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) guidelines for research involving rDNA molecules. NIH guidelines for safe and ethical conduct of rDNA research apply to both basic and clinical research studies.
NYU School of Medicine’s Institutional Biosafety Committee is responsible for approving risk assessment and the biosafety containment levels for such experiments.
Clinical and Translational Science Institute
The Clinical and Translational Science Institute is a partnership between NYU Langone and the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation that has been designed to overcome roadblocks to clinical and translational research and to transform the way that research is carried out. The institute enhances the quality and productivity of research efforts at these institutions and across the nation as part of the NIH Clinical and Translational Science Awards consortium.
Embryonic Stem Cell Research Oversight Committee
All research involving the use of human embryonic stem cells or human pluripotent stem cells must comply with NIH, National Academy of Sciences, Empire State Stem Cell Board, International Society for Stem Cell Research, and institutional regulations.
NYU School of Medicine’s Embryonic Stem Cell Research Oversight Committee reviews all research studies involving the use of human embryonic stem cells or human pluripotent stem cells and registers approved research protocols.
