The Human Subjects Research Office (HSRO) provides administrative support for the University of Miami Institutional Review Boards. An Institutional Review Board is a group of individuals charged with reviewing proposed research involving human subjects to ensure the protection of those subjects and compliance with federal human subject regulations, state law and institutional policy.

The HSRO supports the University IRB process by:

  • Maintaining files on all human subjects research at the University of Miami and Jackson Health System

  • Maintaining a database for tracking all research proposals submitted to the IRB

  • Serving as a resource for investigators on general regulatory information 

  • Developing, updating and providing guidance with forms, informed consent templates and submission procedures

  • Conducting educational workshops to instruct investigators and their staff on the IRB review process

  • Publishing the University of Miami's Policies and Procedures for the Protection of Human Subjects in Research

  • Keeping the University research community abreast of any new developments affecting human subjects research

The University research community is encouraged to contact the HSRO with any questions, comments or suggestions.
