Welcome to the Crescent City Institutional Review Board (CCIRB).Crescent City Institutional Review Board (CCIRB) was established in the mid 1980s by a group of local physicians as a way of giving local representation to the volunteers participating in research. It was established as a local review board and reviewed pharmaceutical research in the greater New Orleans area.

CCIRB was established as a not for profit corporation in April 2000 and began expanding its services to the general research community, functioning as a central IRB. Our Board adheres to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Regulations governing human subjects research and follows International Conference on Harmonisation (ICH) and Good Clinical Practice (GCP) guidelines.

Our Board is comprised of a diverse membership allowing us to satisfy federal regulations. Using CCIRB will give your research facility a distinct advantage. We have the capability to review research materials in a very timely manner. Our Board meets twice a month, but if the need arises, a special meeting can be convened.
