Li Morrow, Research Compliance Specialist, is key contact and staff support for UM-Flint human subjects applications at IRB-HSBS in Ann Arbor.   Most approvals of exempt or not-regulated studies are made by the compliance staff at HSBS, and applications which require full board review are discussed the IRB-HSBS every two weeks.  Two UM-Flint faculty members, Kazuko Hiramatsu, Vice-Chair of IRB-HSBS, and Babara Kuperschmid, serve as the Flint faculty representatives on IRB-HSBS, one each on the two panels (Maize and Blue) which discuss applications that require full board review.  

To begin an application, please reach out to Li Morrow, hamiltol@umich.edu, or begin the IRB application in the eResearch system.

Further information on the IRB approval process is available on the U-M IRB Health Sciences & Behavioral Sciences homepage
