Saint Joseph Mercy Health System houses two Institutional Review Boards, IRB#1 and IRB#2 (OCIRB), which is the central IRB for the Michigan Cancer Research Consortium. The primary responsibility of the IRB is to protect the rights and welfare of human subjects in research. In doing so, the IRB monitors human subject research to determine that it is conducted ethically and in compliance with institutional and Federal regulations, the requirements of applicable law, Saint Joseph Mercy Health System’s Assurance, and Saint Joseph Mercy Health System’s policies and procedures.
IRB#1 is chaired by James Mitchner, M.D., and meets on the first Tuesday of the month. Darlene Wahlberg provides administrative support.
IRB#2, the OCIRB, is chaired by Andrew Eisenberg, M.D., and meets on the third Thursday of the month. Lama Jamhawi provides administrative support.
