The Institutional Review Board (IRB) is the administrative body that oversees the research for both patients and/or employees within Poudre Valley Health System.
The mission of the Institutional Review Board is to facilitate and promote the ethical conduct of research at the Poudre Valley Health System. The IRB committee reviews, approves and monitors biomedical and behavioral human research. The IRB Department offers services in support of clinical research and to promote compliance with federal, state, and institutional regulations governing human subject protections. Our IRB committee is comprised of people with diverse clinical and professional expertise from across the Health System. There are also representatives from the community who play an important role in ensuring that the rights and welfare of the communities served by the Health System are respected and maintained.
The IRB Department can provide you with what you need to know about human subject research, what you need to consider when developing your research proposals, and the information you need to conduct your research and remain in compliance. Ongoing education on human subject research issues through workshops, seminars, conferences, newsletters and computer based training are also available.
