Institutional Review Board

As part of its overall commitment to protecting the privacy, well-being, and other rights of Minnesota citizens, the Minnesota Department of Health has established an Institutional Review Board (IRB), which provides the necessary review and approval process for department-sponsored research.

The Minnesota Department of Health IRB is registered with the federal Office of Human Research Protection. Our registration number is 00000945, and our federal-wide assurance number is 00000072.
