Info and Guidance

One of the goals of the CN IRB is to help promote quality research in the tribe – to that end, we like to help researchers ensure that studies are conducted appropriately to benefit both the Cherokee people and the scientists. The following page will provide researchers with advice and information aimed at resolving any questions or difficulties that may arise during the development of study design. It is strongly recommended that everyone look for official guidance on this page before contact the CN IRB for advice. However, please don’t hesitate to contact us if you need additional help at irb@cherokee.org
