What's New (Norman Campus)

The IRB office has transitioned into a virtual office!
Our office is now telecommuting! We are continuing to process applications, answer phone calls and emails, and our reviewers are reviewing your studies!

Ways to contact us:
Phone: Please call the mainline at 405-325-8110.
We have forwarded the phones to our cell phones, so please do not hang up when the voicemail message comes on. After playing the voicemail message, the phone system will transfer to one of our cell phones. If you call after-hours and must leave a message, please do so. We are set up to receive voicemail alerts, so we will get back with you as soon as possible!

OU IRB Norman Campus Website:

We have a lot of information on our website! This includes guidance on the application process, including step-by-step instructions on how to start a study, and templates that you will need to complete the process. We also have instructions on our website regarding the required CITI Social Behavioral Course training.

Recently, the Association for Accreditation of Human Research Protection Programs (AAHRPP) distributed a newsletter illustrating the average review times for accredited IRBs. We compared our average review times to the national averages for each of the different categories in the graph below.

A very special thank you to our reviewers, administrators, and researchers for helping make our averages so low!
