HIRB can serve as a trusted resource to institutions considering augmenting their research options in utilizing an outsourced, independent IRB. We are committed to comprehensive, inclusive and collaborative partnerships with institutions. Our policies and procedures, established with industry best practices, are reflective of our experience in academic medical centers.

HIRB has brought together the IRB community’s most experienced and trusted professionals. Formed by experts who have worked and served for many years on IRBs in academic and commercial settings, including MIT, Harvard, Columbia, Yale, Boston University, Tufts and Brown, Hummingbird IRB is uniquely familiar and sensitive to institutional priorities and concerns. We understand the challenges and opportunities of research within the academic setting because we, like you, are a little bit different.

HIRB has an open policy regarding its processes. Recognizing it may be inconvenient to view our board members in action, what is very transparent to clients is our OUTCOME FOCUSED PHILANTHROPY (OFP) program. We are eager to engage in discussions about this dynamic client participatory program, which will provides a window into the passion, creativity and commitment with which we approach everything we do.
