Heartland Institutional Review Board is a commercial IRB comprised of experienced researchers
from a variety of disciplines who are dedicated to finding solutions through research and evaluation processes.

Our goal is to offer expert review of research and program evaluation protocols while providing our clients
with clear and informative feedback to ensure compliance with regulations for ethical treatment of human subjects.

Our primary purpose is to protect the rights of human subjects as it pertains to research in the social sciences
and program evaluation.

We review research and program evaluation protocols weekly, and can even expedite review when necessary.

Even though we are a newly established commercial IRB, our review panel consists of over 30 reviewers with an average of 20 years research experience. We operate in accordance with research standards established by the National Institute of Health (NIH) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

To make the review experience as proactive as possible, we work with our customers to customize our review services to best fit their needs.
