Regulatory Affairs and Assessment

Human Subject Research Office and Institutional Review Boards

The University of Miami Institutional Review Boards (IRBs) review all human research conducted under the auspices of the University of Miami and serve as an IRB of record for Jackson Health Systems (JHS). They are composed of members from both scientific and non-scientific backgrounds. Membership includes faculty and staff from both UM and JHS, as well as representatives from the local community.

Conflict of Interest

The University of Miami values the relationships of our investigators with outside entities, and encourages appropriate collaborations that foster new scientific insights while assuring transparency and objectivity in research and the integrity of the scientific record. The University of Miami's conflict of interest (COI) and foreign influence (FI) policy is designed to promote objectivity in research, scholarly and educational activities funded under external grants, contracts or cooperative agreements. UDisclose is the University system that allows all individuals to disclose external financial interests, foreign engagements and other disclosures as required.

Export Control Compliance

While the University applies the principles of freedom of inquiry and open exchange of knowledge, we must also be mindful of the federal laws and regulations governing the exchange of research materials and results that are subject to export controls.
