Single IRB of Record

Michelle LeMenager, Reliance Specialist, Human Research Protection Office

The National Institute of Health (NIH) issued a federal policy that requires certain types of NIH-funded studies to use a single IRB (sIRB). The goal of this policy is to streamline the IRB review process and it goes in effect on January 25, 2018. Topics to be discussed will include:

  • When is sIRB required
  • How to request the use of a sIRB
  • What to include in a sIRB budget
  • What to submit to the Pitt IRB
