New IRB office phone number

Since we have been working remotely, the IRB office has unfortunately not been as available via phone as we would like. We are pleased to announce that we now have a new Teams phone number that is specifically dedicated to the IRB. Similar to our irbinfo@uwm.edu email address, you can use this phone number to reach any IRB office staff. This number will also stay consistent through personnel changes, so we hope that this change will allow us to serve you better both in the short and long term.

You can call this number the same way you would any regular phone number; however, the advantage of the Teams number is that we will be able to answer it whether we are working remotely or in the office.

General IRB office phone number: 414-662-3544

Please update your consent forms with this new number in the IRB contact information. No amendment is needed for this administrative change. The consent templates posted online will be updated within the next couple days.

We also have new dedicated phone numbers through Teams if you need to speak to one of us specifically.

Melody: 414-977-7589

Leah: 414-977-7593

Thanks for your patience as we’ve been sorting out the remote working procedures, and please let us know if you have any questions!
