ADLQ IRB (Institutional Review Board)

Laying emphasis on research, it has been the focus of ADLQ to establish its own Institutional Review Board (IRB) primarily to monitor research proposals; and to grant ethical approvals to those involving human subjects; thereby limiting the conduct of studies exclusively on ethical and professional terms.

The ADLQ Scientific Research Ethics Procedures manual was first drafted in March 2012, containing within it norms on par with international standards.

ADLQ IRB has been approved and registered with the Supreme Council of Health. Their services are not limited to ADLQ alone, but also to research proposals involving human participants, from all over the State of Qatar.
