Institutional Review Board
The Institutional Review Board (IRB) is responsible for protecting the rights and welfare of the human subjects who participate in clinical research trials at Guthrie. The IRB ensures that all trials comply with the regulations of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), state and local laws, and Guthrie Healthcare System policies.
The IRB consists of a diverse group of physicians, professionals and community members who serve as voting members. The GHS Board of Directors appoints the IRB chairperson and each member.
