Welcome to the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee’s Human Research Protection Program (HRPP).
The HRPP is the home of the Institutional Review Board (IRB) for the protection of human subjects. The IRB holds autonomous decision making when reviewing human subject research studies under the jurisdiction of the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee. The mission of the IRB is to ensure the adequacy of the research plan, to minimize risks and to maximize the potential for benefit for human subjects who participate in research.
All submissions are reviewed in the order in which they were received. This includes new studies, amendments, continuing reviews, and determination forms.
Initial reviews (acceptance into IRBManager) are currently taking approximately 4-5 business days.
