What We Do
The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley's Institutional Review Board (IRB) reviews all research that meets the definition of “human subjects research”. The board is made up of UTRGV faculty, staff, and members of the community. The board evaluates research proposals to make sure the planned research follows the ethical principles of human subjects protection and that it adheres to university policies and federal regulations.
Achieving ethical clearance for university research
Achieving ethical clearance for humans subjects research can be a daunting task. To assist in the process, the UTRGV Institutional Review Board is opening the doors for an Open House Hours every second Monday of each month. Whether you have a concern, a question, a suggestion, or idea regarding the IRB or your human subjects research protocol, we are here to assist! No appointment needed. Come and chat with those responsible for research ethics at UTRGV. We are happy to help YOU achieve your research goals in a timely way!
See you there, every second Monday of each month from 2-4PM
Call us at (956) 665-2889 to find out location information. We will have Open House Hours in Edinburg and in Brownsville.
