Working with Human Subjects
Any research that involves either the participation of human subjects or the use of human biological specimens, medical charts, or databases with information about humans is considered to be human subject research and requires review.
Additional information on when human subject review is required is described in IRB SOP: Determining when Activities and Research Involves Human Subjects
The MCW/FH Institutional Review Board (MCW/FH IRB) reviews human subject research to ensure the ethical and equitable treatment of those subjects under federal and state laws. The MCW/FH IRB is part of the Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) in the Office of Research at MCW and is federally registered with OHRP & FDA.
