Institutional Review Board

Research Institute

Phoenix Children's maintains two Institutional Review Board (IRB) panels that seek to ensure all human subject research be conducted in accordance with all federal, institutional and ethical guidelines. The IRB, in accordance with FDA regulations, is charged with the rights and welfare of humans participating as research participants.

The Phoenix Children's IRB operates under a Federal Wide Assurance (FWA) through the Department of Health and Human Services (DHSS) in support of the Code of Federal Regulations [45 CFR part 46]. 

New study submissions to the Phoenix Children's IRB are routed through the iRIS IRB system. To request an iRIS account, please access the iRIS login page and select “Request New Account”.
