Welcome to UMass Medical School Institutional Review Board

If you plan to conduct research involving human subjects, the research study must be reviewed and approved by the UMass Institutional Review Board before the study begins. Constituted as the Committee for the Protection of Human Subjects in Research, the UMass IRB serves as IRB of record for all human research conducted by UMass faculty and investigators at the Medical School or at associated research locations, including the campuses of UMass Memorial Medical Center and the member hospitals of UMass Memorial Health Care.

Detailed instructions on how to submit a research study to the IRB can be found in the Investigator’s Manual. Additional help is always available at the IRB Office at 508-856-4261 or email: IRB@umassmed.edu. We look forward to assisting you!
