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 human subjects research projects must submit an IRB application in the eResearch system. The eResearch system uses a decision-tree to route your application to the correct area for either IRB review, or an option for a self-determination if it meets the criteria. The study must go thru this process 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.
- 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
