While the IRB Office is fully operational, due to COVID-19 precautions, all IRB staff are working remotely and suspending in-person meetings with researchers. However, IRB staff are still available by phone during our regularly scheduled drop-in hours (Wed. 2-3pm and Thurs. 10-11am), no appointment necessary. If you need assistance outside these hours, please contact a member of the IRB Staff by email to discuss or to set up a phone appointment (see Contact the IRB for details). We will continue to update the research community with further information related to COVID-19 and it’s impacts on research via the following webpage: https://kb.wisc.edu/hsirbs/page.php?id=98594. Additionally, the IRBs have launched a new combined website with information for all UW-Madison IRBs. Please visit the new website for information on upcoming IRB changes, the new Investigator Manual, and the Toolkit Library.
