Research involving human subjects must be reviewed and approved by an Institutional Review Board (IRB). At the UW, several IRB committees serve this function. The Human Subjects Division (HSD) provides administrative support and facilitates IRB review; assisting researchers throughout the process.

If you have an IRB that needs the Chair's signature, please submit your IRB application to Debi Kirkpatrick, Grant & Contracts Specialist. You can email her the application at debik@uw.edu or for more information call her at (206) 616-1830. Please allow at least two days to acquire the signature.
