IRB fees apply if your study is sponsored by a private or industry sponsor. Fees do not apply when your study is government agency, non-profit, personally-funded, or WVU-sponsored.

Fees associated with reviews of industry sponsored clinical trials involving human subjects are increasing effective July 1, 2019. These fees apply to all industry sponsored clinical trials across the board.
