University of Michigan Registration with FDA and OHRP
Registration Name and Number: U of Michigan, IORG0000144
The University of Michigan's Institutional Review Boards (IRBs) are registered with the HHS Office of Human Research Protections and, in compliance with the new HHS Food and Drug Administration (FDA) rule issued on July 14, 2009, with FDA.
FDA’s new requirement operates in coordination with the Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP), which already requires registration for IRBs reviewing federally-supported research. A single database of all U.S. IRBs, regardless of whether they review research regulated by FDA or other federal agencies, has been established.
Registration information can be accessed via the HHS Registration page. In the search field "Institution/Organization" enter "U of Michigan" to verify UM registration.
