The Phronetik IRB Office

Phronetik Institutional Review Boards (IRBs) are charged with protecting the rights and welfare of participants in clinical trials and other human subjects research studies.  Phronetik IRBs review research involving human subjects to ensure the welfare and rights of research participants are protected as mandated by federal and state laws, local policies, and ethical principles.

About Phronetik IRBs

Get to Know Us

Phronetik Institutional Review Boards (IRBs) are the committees designated by Phronetik to review the conduct of research involving human subjects that is conducted by Phronetik researchers and staff (conducting studies involving human subjects within the course and scope of their duties) as well as Phronetik interns (conducting studies involving human subjects within the course of their studies).

The function of the IRBs is to ensure adherence to all federal, state, local, and institutional regulations concerning the protection of human subjects in research. Phronetik IRB review is required for both funded and non-funded human subjects research.

The Phronetik Office of Human Studies Research (OHSR) provides support to the Phronetik IRBs and for arrangements with external IRBs.
