The mission of Research Office is to provide higher performance of research activities of AUCA faculty and the structural units that have to undertake scientific studies
AUCA Institutional Review Board (IRB) reviews research proposals to ensure that the rights and well-being of human subjects used in the research study by AUCA-affiliated students, staff, and personnel are protected.
The goal of the reviews is to ensure that all possible risks are minimized while the potential benefits are maximized; that human subjects participate on a voluntary basis after being provided with informed consent; that AUCA-affiliated research is conducted in that manner that is ethical and non-maleficent.
