Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) & Institutional Review Board (IRB)

Baptist Memorial Health Care Institutional Review Board

The Baptist Memorial Health Care Corporation-Institutional Review Board (Baptist IRB) is a committee of physicians, statisticians, researchers, community advocates and others that ensures a clinical trial is ethical and the rights of study participants are protected.

By federal regulation, all clinical trials in the U.S. must be approved by an IRB before they begin. At Baptist, the IRB initially approves and periodically reviews the research in order to protect the rights of human participants.

All research studies performed using any Baptist facility must be reviewed by the Baptist IRB. All research proposals must be submitted to the IRB two (2) weeks prior to the next scheduled meeting (see schedule below). Four (4) weeks prior to study expiration date is suggested for renewals. Please download the appropriate documents for your submission.
