A warm welcome to the Human Subjects Office (HSO) website.  We look forward partnering with you in the protection of human subjects.  The HSO works with a number of Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) committees here on the University of Iowa campus to review human subjects research.  The HSO website is a tool to guide you through the human research protection program process. On the HSO website you will find:

  • information on how to get started when conducting human subjects research
  • educational offerings, office hours, IRB newsletter, and more to help you navigate the process
  • assistance in submitting to the IRB

The HSO also has information for research subjects and the general public about participating in research.

We encourage you to take advantage of the information found on the HSO website.  If you should have questions at any time regarding human subjects research, please contact our office via our staff directory or by contacting our main office by phone (319) 335-6564 or email irb@uiowa.edu(link sends e-mail).  

We look forward to working with you in the protection of human subjects in research.
