Miami Research Ethics and Integrity Program

To support the Miami community in fulfilling the professional, contractual,
 legal, and ethical obligations intrinsic to research activities

The MREI provides administrative support to the Institutional Review Board for research involving humans as subjects (IRB), the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC), the Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC), and the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) Program. In addition to records and review management, the MREI reviews qualifying minimal risk human subject’s research, conducts training for researchers interacting with the IRB, IACUC, IBC, and RCR programs, and provides ad hoc advice regarding methods that adhere to ethical principles as researchers plan their activities. While adherence to federal regulations is required when research is federally funded, the principles and procedures are followed for all research conducted by Miami community members.
