Intermountain’s Office of Research helps researchers navigate the complex investigative process. Our staff is available to answer questions, provide guidance, and ensure safety and compliance at every level.

We first ensure that every study involving human beings is evaluated and approved by Intermountain’s Institutional Review Board. This guarantees each study is safe for patients. We also help researchers obtain funding for their approved projects, access education and data analysis resources, manage the operational components of their studies, and publish or present their findings. The Office of Research also partners with other Intermountain entities to provide access to cutting-edge technology and biomaterial resources.

We help streamline the process for researchers so they can lead safe and successful clinical studies. Download the 2015 Research Guidebook to learn more about our research resources and processes.
