IRB 7 is the application behind eProst, UM’s Electronic Protocol Submission and Tracking System. The Human Subject Research Office (HRSO) provides administrative support for the University of Miami Institutional Review Boards (IRB). An institutional review board is a group of individuals comprised of faculty, staff and community members charged with reviewing proposed research involving human subjects to ensure the protection of those subjects and compliance with applicable federal regulations, state law and institutional policy that govern human subject research.
