Single IRB Requirement for Cooperative Research

September 23, 2019 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Since January 25, 2018, the NIH has required use of a Single IRB [sIRB] for the review of NIH-funded multisite studies where each site will conduct the same protocol involving non-exempt human subjects research. The Revised Common Rule, which sets forth federal regulatory requirements regarding Human Subjects Protections, went into effect on January 21, 2019 and extends the sIRB review requirement to all “cooperative research” [Research involving one or more institutions] funded by a federal agency that is a signatory to the rule. The required implementation date for this provision is January 20, 2019.

Single IRB Requirement for Cooperative Research will provide an overview of the sIRB requirements, describe the process for requesting reliance on JHM IRB or an External IRB, and to discuss how the cooperative research provision affects new and existing human research studies.

This course is open to all and will count towards  SOM IRB PI recertification.
