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.

HawkIRB Project Index Update

NEW! Enhancements to the eResearch (HawkIRB) application are now live in an effort to better inform you of the federal, state, and local policies that may apply to human subject research. We hope you find these enhancements helpful in preparing the eResearch application for IRB review.  The Human Subjects Office is excited to introduce the research community to a new educational tool in HawkIRB. We have affectionately referred to it as the HawkIRB Carousel. The carousel is the new index view you will see when you initiate a form in HawkIRB.
