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:
https://compliance.ouhsc.edu/HRPP - under Researcher & Coordinator, select Norman Campus; Select tabs: Researcher’s Toolkit and/or Education & Training.
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.

On or about 4/21/2016, we experienced a disk storage issue with our iRIS Research Submission System. The net effect of this issue was the loss of data in forms or completed forms that were submitted during that day or possibly the day before.

If you have entered any forms into the iRIS system, submitted any new Applications, Continuing Review Forms, Modifications, etc., or responded to a Review Response Form during this time, you can contact the IRB to make certain that the submission was received.

This recent issue has been resolved and we are working with Information Technology to insure that it does not happen in the future. The IRB/HRPP apologizes for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Thank you for your understanding

This past January, our Training Coordinator participated in a series of video interviews with Dr. Jim Martin, Director of OU's Zarrow Center for Learning Enrichment. William Farrell in the Center for Teaching Excellence produced the videos and has written a blog post about the experience.
