    California Pacific Medical Center Institutional Review Board (IRB)

    In accordance to the FDA IRB Registration Rule, CPMC IRB (IORG0000141): Panel 1 (IRB00000239) and Panel 2 (IRB00005842), has registered all FDA-regulated research with the OHRP. The OHRP processed this registration on 01/12/2010. Confirmation can be found at the OHRP website


    Last year the CPMC IRB converted to a web-based, electronic protocol management and on-line submission system called IRBNet. All submissions (e.g., new studies, progress reports, modifications) to the IRB need to be made electronically through the IRBNet system.

    IRB Committee at CPMC

    The California Pacific Medical Center IRB holds the primary responsibility for the oversight of the protection of human subjects recruited to participate or actively participating in research projects conducted by or under the auspices of California Pacific Medical Center.

    The IRB has the authority to approve, require modifications in or disapprove research and serves an important role in the protection of the rights and welfare of human research subjects.

    Every research study involving humans must be approved prior to initiation, and then reviewed at least every year, or more often as indicated, by the IRB. The IRB's primary responsibility is the protection of human subjects from undue risk and from deprivation of personal rights and dignity.
