Institutional Review Boards

Rush University’s Office of Research Affairs has two institutional review boards (IRBs) as part of its human research protections program (HRPP).

  • Each IRB is equally constituted and reviews the same types and levels of research.
  • Each IRB meets once a week, every week throughout the calendar year.

All research studies, including those that may qualify for exemption, must be submitted to the Rush University IRB for approval through the Rush Research Portal
