Federal regulations require that a committee called the Institutional Review Board (IRB) review, approve and monitor all research involving human subjects. Texas Health Resources operates a systemwide IRB.
The IRB protects the rights and welfare of human research participants. It monitors human subject research to determine that it is conducted ethically, and in compliance with federal regulations, state law and Texas Health Resources' policies and procedures.
IRB members include physicians, nurses, and community representatives, with Texas Health administration representatives also participating.
