The UMMS Institutional Review Board (IRB) must review and approve all research involving human subjects. The IRB also fields questions regarding whether an activity is or is not research involving human subjects. The IRB provides written determinations in response to written requests that are submitted as new studies in eIRB.

The Research Informatics Core ensures the security of patient information by controlling and auditing the distribution of data after IRB documentation is obtained.

For more information on obtaining IRB approval for research involving human subjects or a determination that an activity is not human subjects research, please visit the UMMS Institutional Review Board website.
