Welcome to the Wisconsin Institutional Review Board (IRB) Consortium (WIC) website! The primary purpose of WIC is to facilitate collaboration among member institutions' Institutional Review Boards in order to provide more effective and efficient oversight of multi-site human subject research protocols in Wisconsin and reduce costs and duplication of effort among the Member institutions and affiliated investigators. The Consortium has established one agreement that allows any member institution to serve as the IRB of record for another and eliminates the need to draft individual, study-specific IRB authorization agreements for each study reviewed.
At this point, WIC is limited to the following participants:
- Aurora Health Care IRB, Milwaukee
- Marshfield Clinic IRB, Marshfield
- Medical College of Wisconsin IRB, Milwaukee
- University of Wisconsin-Madison Health Sciences IRB, Madison
If you are an investigator from one of the institutions listed above who is collaborating on a project with an investigator from another one of the participating institutions, your project is eligible for review through the WIC process. See "How to Use WIC" for more details.
