Celebrating 50 years as the “gold standard” of ethical and regulatory review, Western IRB (WIRB) pioneered the concept of independent oversight in 1968. WIRB has served as the central IRB partner and independent ethical advisor to more than 2,700 institutions, including 200 universities and academic medical centers (AMCs), as well as the leading hospitals and healthcare systems in North America. With eight AAHRPP-accredited review panels that each meet twice weekly, WIRB reduces IRB review turn-around time, enabling our investigators to begin enrolling participants into clinical research studies within one week of review submission. WIRB and its sister IRB, Copernicus Group, are the only two independent IRBs to ever achieve both Lean Six Sigma and ISO-9001 certifications, demonstrating our commitment to achieving the highest level of efficiency and quality.
