Because of the unique, innovative nature of our mission, QMF established an Institutional Review Board (IRB) and offers it for use by other researchers in addition to the Foundation’s. The IRB’s mission is to monitor the scientific integrity of clinical studies and the safety and ethical treatment of subjects who participate in them.
Most traditionally constituted, university-based institutional review boards have not been trained to conceptualize, support, or adequately evaluate the research and application of neurofeedback and related, drug-free, noninvasive technologies. The QMF IRB was created to independently serve our institutional goals as well as the needs of outside clinician/researchers working to advance knowledge in the field.
The IRB board is an international body composed of highly-regarded professionals from widely diverse fields who are committed to promoting useful, safe, and ethical research protocols. It is comprised of a cross-section of qualified professionals in neurology, psychiatry, law, internal medicine, management consulting, electronic engineering, neuropsychology, statistics, ethics, and cognitive neuroscience.
QMF IRB members are also available to consult with outside researchers on ways to improve the design, implementation, data analysis, and presentation of their studies.
