IRB Requirements for Collaborative, Cooperative, and Multi-Site Research
- 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
In an effort to streamline the IRB review process, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has instituted a requirement for Single IRB [sIRB] review of NIH-funded multi-site studies, involving non-exempt human subjects research, in which each site conducts the same protocol. Beginning January 20, 2020, the 2018 Revised Common Rule extends the sIRB review requirement to all “cooperative research” (human subjects research involving one or more institutions) funded by a federal agency that is a Common Rule signatory.
The purpose of this training opportunity is to provide an overview of new sIRB requirements, outline to what studies the sIRB requirements apply, and to describe the process for implementing IRB reliance agreements at Iowa State University.
