Banner Research works with Banner Health facilities and investigators to conduct ethical, compliant and comprehensive research studies. The research programs within Banner Health are proud to be fully accredited by the Association for the Accreditation of Human Research Protection Programs (AAHRPP), which recognizes the quality and ethically sound research.
We provide support to researchers across all Banner Health facilities and locations in a number of different ways:
To provide administrative support and oversight for approximately 1200 inpatient and outpatient research projects, we work with Banner Health administrators and key decision makers to establish hospital-based research departments comprising research directors, clinical research nurses, clinical research coordinators and Regulatory Affairs support.
Research directors and research staff work with interested investigators and senior leaders to assess what it will take in terms of time, resources and effort to support a broad array of research projects. They can help investigators by:
An Institutional Review Board (IRB) is an FDA-required committee that ensures the rights and welfare of people participating in research are protected. Learn more about the Banner Health IRB.
Banner Health research institutions receive millions of dollars in grants enabling our researchers to collaborate and innovate as they advance the science. Learn more about grant proposal and submission at Banner Health.
Banner Research has provided useful investigator and research resources, including links to government, clinical trial, grant and training information.
