Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta IRB

An Institutional Review Board (IRB) is a committee whose primary responsibility is to protect the rights and welfare of human subjects in research.  All research activities involving human subjects must be reviewed and approved by an IRB unless the IRB can prospectively determine that the research falls into a category of exemption established by federal regulation.

Children's IRB reviews the following:

  • All research conducted under the supervision of a PI who is solely employed by Children’s

  • Research conducted by a Pediatric Institute employee that involves the review of Children’s medical records, surveys, interviews, or questionnaires (regardless of funding)

  • Research conducted by a Pediatric Institute employee that is an industry sponsored clinical trial

For complete information and submission details, visit the Children's IRB website.
