Human Subject Research

Welcome

The University of Memphis Institutional Review Board is a committee designed to approve, monitor, and review any research involving humans. The aim of the IRB is to protect the rights and welfare of the research subjects.

This web site is designed to guide you through the process of obtaining approval for human subject research. The Education Requirements page will link you to a page where you can obtain certification to conduct research involving human subjects. Effective 6/30/12, certification is required for the investigator and, if applicable, the faculty advisor before the IRB will process your application. Please include the CITI certification number in your application. See IRB Forms to download the most current applications, final/progress reports, template consent forms and other important documents.

See the FAQ for general questions. The Decision Guide can help you answer questions such as: Am I involved in research? Does the research involve Human Subjects?

If you need to report a study-related injury, or if you have questions, please contact the IRB Administrator at irb@memphis.edu or 901-678-2705.

If you have any concerns regarding integrity and ethics in research and scholarship at U of Memphis, please do not hesitate to call (901) 678-2705 or email irb@memphis.edu. The confidentiality of anyone who contacts the office will be protected under the Whistleblower Protection Act. Working together we will promote the highest standard of integrity and ethics in research and scholarship.
