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.
Due to high submission volume, we are currently averaging 5-6 business days to complete initial reviews (i.e. accept into IRBManager) for all new studies, amendments, continuing reviews, and determinations. Thank you for your understanding and patience while we catch up.
