The UM-Flint Institutional Review Board's (IRB) primary goal is to protect the rights and welfare of human research subjects recruited to participate in research activities conducted under the auspices of the University of Michigan. Please note the following:

  • All research projects must be approved before investigators may begin any aspect of their project
  • The Principal Investigator (PI) is responsible for providing accurate and complete information in the eResearch application
  • All UM-Flint research projects must be submitted through an electronic software program known as eResearch 
  • All research in which a UM-Flint faculty or staff member or student or other trainee is the principal investigator and all research using UM-Flint facilities or private information should be reviewed and, if approved, monitored, by IRB-Flint
  • Occasionally, given the nature of the research or location of subject recruitment, a project may require review by a University of Michigan IRB other than IRB-Flint or by an IRB at another institution. Investigators who believe this situation may apply to their project must contact IRB-Flint before submitting an application
