Avera Institutional Review Board

The Avera Institutional Review Board (IRB) serves as an ethical review board to protect the rights and welfare of individuals who serve as subjects of research conducted within the Avera system and the Avera Heart Hospital.

The Avera IRB holds all research projects involving human subjects to high standards by:

  • Helping investigators conduct their research along ethical guidelines reflecting professional as well as community standards
  • Ensuring compliance with applicable regulatory codes
  • Making sure that all research meets regulations established by the United States Code of Federal Regulations (CFR)
