OU Norman Campus Institutional Review Board (IRB)
Institutional Commitment to the Protection of Human Research Participants
Welcome to the University of Oklahoma-Norman Campus Institutional
Review Board (OU-NC IRB) Web site. The OU-NC IRB serves the
Norman Campus, Tulsa Campus (non-medical) and Cameron University.
All research involving human participants that is conducted at or by
researchers affiliated with these campuses must comply with applicable
policies for the protection of human subjects.
All research involving human participants
must be reviewed and approved by the OU-NC IRB prior to
recruitment and data collection.
The Office of Human Research Participant Protection/IRB is located at One Partners Place 350 David L. Boren Blvd, Suite 1750 Norman, OK 73019.
The office hours, Monday – Friday, 7:30am – 5:00pm and office telephone number is (405)325-8110. The email address is email@example.com
Investigators not affiliated with the University of Oklahoma who wish to conduct research that involves either recruitment of participants
or other cooperation by the institution should contact the IRB for further instruction.
Permission will be granted as consistent with the institution's mission of teaching, research, and service.
A new version of the iRIS application will be put into effect on Friday, March 14, 2014. Please call or email the IRB if you notice any issues in functionality.
The changes will affect the way you complete the Determination of Human Research Worksheet and Protocol Development submission.
Now, you will access these forms through the Add a New Study button (just as you would for the full study application).
Once you designate the campus you wish to receive your submission, you will be prompted to select which type of form you would like to submit.
If you select "Determination of Human Subjects Research Worksheet" or "Protocol Development Application", you will be prompted to start the form.
After you select the button to start, you will be branched into your selected form and will complete like normal.
At the end, select the Exit Form button to return to your original submission form. Continue completing the form just as you would for the study application.
You will have a chance to upload any supporting documents at the end of the submission. Please contact the IRB if you have any questions.
Information Technology will perform routine monthly server maintenance on Saturday, March 15, 2014 from 7:00AM - 2:00PM.
This procedure is scheduled monthly to install security patches, perform upgrades and modifications, reboot systems and test fail-over capability.
Brief disruptions may occur for Internet connectivity, all websites hosted by HSC IT, Exchange email, file and print services, database services, and IRIS.
We apologize for any inconvenience.
Thank you for your patience.
