The Human Subjects Office and the Institutional Review Boards work hard year-round to facilitate research at the University of Iowa while protecting the health and safety of subjects under our care. Costs of administering these programs continue to rise, however, which means the Office of Research and Economic Development will need to adjust some of its fees for FY17.
These increases, which haven’t been adjusted since 2014, are consistent with those charged by peer institutions for IRB review. The fee schedule and other changes, effective July 1, 2016 for all new submissions are in the memo found here.
This new fee structure will be effective for all new submissions to the HSO for review by either IRB-01, IRB-03, or an external IRB as of July 1, 2016. For all submissions prior to July 1, they will fall under the existing fee structure.
