June 2022 SMART Talk: Serving as a Reviewing IRB for Large Multi-Site Studies
To be or not to be the Reviewing IRB – that is the question! Many institutions have evaluated their capacity and determined that their IRBs can only act as the Reviewing IRB for studies with a limited number of sites. Others have taken the plunge and served as Reviewing IRB for studies involving 10 sites, and many more. The panelists for this session will discuss what is needed to scale single IRB review when you are working with a significant number of sites, as well as what your institution should consider before deciding whether to take on the role of Reviewing IRB for a large multi-site study.
