How to Find Our Office
IRB Committee Rosters

The members of the Institutional Review Board are appointed by the Vice Chancellor for Research. There are four separate committees, each of which reviews biomedical and behavioral protocols. There is no separate behavioral IRB committee. Federal requirements mandate that the IRB must have at least five members of varying backgrounds to promote complete and adequate review of research activities commonly conducted at this institution. IRB members must be knowledgeable about institutional commitments and regulations, applicable laws, standards of professional conduct, and practice.

Biomedical research includes investigations examining clinical outcomes from the administration of drugs, supplements, medicines, surgical and other clinical procedures and diagnostics, treatment regimens, and clinically applied interventions affecting the progression, symptom management, diagnosis, or prevention of disease. Methods include the administration of these techniques, substances and procedures to measure endpoint and outcome effectiveness.

The Biomedical IRB committees regularly meet for four sessions per month -- the first, second, third and fourth Tuesdays -- except during UAMS holidays. All rosters are presented in PDF format.
