August SMART Talk: Single IRB: Relying Institution Roles, Responsibilities, and Opportunities
The required use of single IRB review for most federally funded research has had a significant impact on human research protection programs. More institutions cede IRB review than serve as Reviewing IRBs. Panelists for this SMART Talk will explore the effects on institutions of relying on external IRBs, what processes institutions should have in place to oversee their research portfolios even when they are reviewed by an external IRB, how to help study teams understand what it means to rely on an external IRB, and some of the best practices and lessons learned by relying institutions.
