The Colorado Multiple Institutional Review Board (COMIRB) is responsible for reviewing and overseeing human subject research conducted at the University of Colorado Denver.
Legal requirements to protect human subjects apply to a much broader range than many researchers realize and applying the regulations is not always a straightforward process. In light of this difficulty and the potential consequences of noncompliance, researchers are advised to consult with the COMIRB when uncertain whether the activity is considered human subject research.
contemplating the use of human subjects in their research (includes surveys,
interviews, and/or any kind of information obtained by using humans as
test subjects) must obtain approval from the Colorado Multiple Institutional Review Board (COMIRB) before beginning such research. A project involving humans, which has not
been reviewed by the Committee, may be disallowed. Please contact 303-724-1055 for more
Students doing research that uses animals in any form must have their research protocol approved by the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee.
