Institutional Review Board Now Recruiting

The Institutional Review Board (IRB) is looking for a community member to join the board in the spring.

Unaffiliated community members play an important role on the IRB. They bring fresh insight and perspective to board decisions about how best to protect research participants. The Community Member has the particular responsibility of bringing the perspective of the volunteer research participant to the review of protocols. Community members do not have a current affiliation with the UI or VA and must not have had one for the past two years. They also must not have an immediate family member (spouse or child) affiliated with either institution.

If you know anyone interested in the position, please email the IRB at
