Review by the IRB is required for research involving human subjects regardless of the funding source, and also covers human subjects research without funding.
The IRB submission process can be daunting so follow this easy checklist (it's also available on the Office of Research Regulatory Affairs website).
Step 7: Review the IRB approval process.
