Protecting the Rights and Welfare of Human and Animal Subjects

In the context of the recent COVID-19 outbreak, the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences has revised its requirements related to human subjects-related research. Get more information.


The UAMS Institutional Review Board (IRB) protects the rights and welfare of subjects involved in the human research that it oversees. Similarly, the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) (intranet link) monitors and protects the welfare of animal subjects involved in the biomedical research.
