Announcement of Normal Operations

The UP Manila Research Ethics Board (UPMREB) reiterates its previous announcement of normal operations during the enhanced community quarantine. The UPMREB physical office is closed but the review panels will continue to accept and process submissions, queries, and other requests through iREB and email. The requirement for hard copy submissions is suspended until such time that the UPMREB office reopens, after quarantine has been lifted. All reviews are facilitated online, and panel actions are communicated to investigators through electronic mail. Standard review turnaround time remains. However, in view of the urgent nature of specific COVID-19 related protocols, UPMREB is implementing a flexible system to facilitate panel actions as quickly as possible.

For more information, investigators may consult the UPMREB website at for FAQs, submission process, meeting dates and other correspondence. For any concerns, UPMREB may be reached or mobile numbers 09351020973 or 09324197915.
