Automated notifications

Because information for existing studies has been migrated from the legacy IRB system to Click IRB, you may begin to receive email messages from the Click IRB system even though you have not yet used it. Until you have begun using the Click IRB system, you may ignore these notifications.

What is the Institutional Review Board?

The Institutional Review Board (IRB) is a committee established to protect the rights and welfare of the children and families who participate in research activities conducted under the auspices of Seattle Children's and affiliated research organizations. The IRB reports to the president of Seattle Children's Research Institute. The IRB is responsible for ensuring that basic ethical principles as well as federal regulations, state law and institutional policy governing the protection of research participants are applied to research activities.


IRB members are appointed by the president of the research institute. A broad representation of pediatric specialties is found among the scientific members. In addition to the scientific members, the IRB includes non-scientists and unaffiliated members as required by federal regulation.
