Institutional Review Board

Institutional Review Board (IRB)


Welcome to the AdventHealth Institutional Review Board. The IRB is responsible for reviewing all research conducted at AdventHealth or by AdventHealth employees/agents for ethical standards, scientific merit, and regulatory compliance.

The purpose of the IRB is to protect the rights and welfare of people who volunteer to participate in human subjects research. The IRB is guided by the ethical principles set forth in the National Commission for the Protection of Human Subjects of Biomedical and Behavioral Research report, called the Belmont Report.

The IRB functions independently but in coordination with other AdventHealth committees and departments. AdventHealth IRB members include men and women of diverse backgrounds who are: physicians and PhDs of different disciplines and professions, pharmacists, nurses, clergy, community members, and hospital employees. The IRB staff is available to give guidance and to facilitate review.
