UCI IRB Seeking Non-Scientist Community Members
University of California, Irvine’s (UCI) Institutional Review Board (IRB) is looking for the help of non-scientist community members in our mission to ensure the protection of research participants volunteering for human research. An IRB is a committee established to review and approve research involving human subjects. The purpose of the IRB is to ensure that all human subject research be conducted in accordance with all federal, institutional, and ethical guidelines.
We are looking for individuals who:
-Are interested in contributing directly to the facilitation of human subject research at UCI.
-Are unaffiliated with UCI. Employees, current students, and regular volunteers of UCI and their immediate family members (spouse/domestic partner or dependent children) are considered affiliated.
-Are a non-scientist. A non-scientist is someone whose training, background and occupation would incline them to view research activities from a standpoint outside of any biomedical or behavioral scientific discipline.
For more information, email Beverley Alberola, Associate Director of Research Protections at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her directly at: 949-824-5746.
The Human Research Protections index page is a single portal to resources, expertise and best practices for researchers, participants, IRB members, IRB partners and affiliates.
