Welcome

The Human Subjects Office (HSO) was established by the Vice President for Research to provide administrative support for the University of Iowa Institutional Review Boards. An Institutional Review Board is a group of individuals charged with reviewing proposed research involving human subjects to ensure the protection of those subjects and compliance with federal human subjects regulations. The University of Iowa has three such review boards, each consisting of faculty, staff, and representatives from the Iowa City community.

Mission

The mission of the University of Iowa Institutional Review Boards is to assure that the rights and welfare of human subjects are adequately protected in research.

HSO Experiencing Voice Mail Technical Difficulties

HSO Main Line Voice Mail Issue If you are trying to phone the Human Subjects Office's main phone line (335-6564), and you are receiving an error message that says, "The user you are trying to reach on this system does not have a valid voice mail box," do not lose heart. Please hang up and phone us again in a few minutes. We are experiencing some technical issues due to a mixture of traditional voice mail services and the new unified voice mail services within our office. It has created some unintended consequences.
