IRB Manual
      7.8 Brain Dead Subjects
Because New York State has not adopted a brain death statute, the status of research involving "subjects" who have been declared dead using brain death criteria, but whose cardiorespiratory function is being artificially maintained, is unclear. For this reason, it is highly recommended that an IRB should review the research and that the IRB and/or the researcher should consult legal counsel to clarify the status of the particular "subjects".
