Institutional Review Board-03

Welcome to the UF Health Science Center Jacksonville (UFHSCJ) Institutional Review Board-03 (IRB). This site is designed to provide information and guidance to UFHSCJ faculty members, staff members and students who participate in research.

The IRB's primary mission is to protect the rights and welfare of participants in human research studies (research subjects). The IRB membership is diverse and includes experts from a variety of fields such as physicians, nurses, pharmacists, statisticians, researchers, community members and others. The IRB reviews research before it is started, and most research while it is being conducted, to assess that the research meets appropriate ethical, federal, state, and local requirements/guidelines.

Meeting Schedule & Submission Deadlines

Note: All submissions for IRB review require a single electronic copy of all documents to be emailed and a single (signed) original hardcopy be provided to the IRB office. The IRB cannot log in the submission until the paper copy is received.
