Decedent Research

Research protocols involving decedents do not require IRB review. However, based upon federal regulations for HIPAA at 45 CFR 46.160 and 164, a review by the Institution's Privacy Board is required.

MCW/FH IRBs also serve as the Privacy Boards. Principal investigators conducting research with decedents must submit an eBridge SmartForm application to the IRB for review and determination prior to conducting their research.
