About Our Company

Key elements that make Alpha IRB successful are:


The integrity of our people and culture drives us to provide the highest levels of customer service in the industry. We also understand the time pressures and expectations sponsor companies place on the study managers. This means we follow through on our promises; meet or exceed promised timelines; there are no hidden fees in our pricing; manage our growth in a way that does not sacrifice service levels; and if we do make a mistake, we fix it promptly at no cost to you. We are accountable for the work we do. We simply do what is expected of a quality organization.



The Alpha IRB Board and staff are experienced in research and in IRB environments. Our experience is broad in Phase I – IV research in both multi-center and single site study designs. Our experience allows us to understand the specific needs of each study site and sponsor in carrying out our ethical review services. Our detailed standard operating procedures, quality control and compliance measures will work together to ensure that your studies meet all regulatory requirements. On top of our experience, we provide excellent continuing education and training to our board and staff members.



At Alpha IRB we believe in the use of technology to make communication and documents available possible at all times. Our goal is to use technology to make life better not more difficult. The Alpha IRB web portal does just that!! The web portal gives 24 hour accessibility to important IRB documents. Sites and sponsors may submit one time and will be in our database making all future submissions more efficient. Studies can be tracked from the submission date through the review cycle of the protocol. No need to provide shipping accounts as documents are available through the web portal (OASIS). The web portal ensures consistency and that the highest levels of performance are met.

While we like the efficiency that the technology provides, Alpha IRB is still about creating a professional relationship that you enjoy working with. Your study will be assigned an study management specialist who will work hand in hand with you from study start-up through to close out.
