Joint Pediatric Institutional Review Board (IRB)

A separate Institutional Review Board reviews and approves all human subject research involving children conducted by the faculty, students, staff, or other representatives of UNMC, Children’s Hospital & Medical Center or UNO. The Peds IRB also reviews and approves any research involving children conducted by non-affiliated investigators, when the research is conducted on the premises of UNMC, Children's Hospital & Medical Center, clinics owned or operated by UNMC or Children's Hospital & Medical Center and UNO. The Peds IRB is administratively located in the Office of Regulatory Affairs at UNMC. 

The Pediatric Research Office (PRO) staff can prepare your clinical trial IRB application and all forms required for submission. The PRO charges a fee for this service. For more information, please contact Ashley Servais, Manager, Clinical Trials.
