Presented by Cynthia Monahan, Director, CRC IRB and Mary-Tara Roth, Director, Clinical Research Resources Office. Not having a good understanding of the purpose of the Institutional Review Board (IRB) and process for the IRB application submission can result in long delays in starting research studies. This presentation will provide an introduction to the Institutional Review Board and Human Subjects Protection regulations to give you the background you need to have efficient and successful IRB submissions. Topics such as IRB purpose and processes, regulatory definitions, how to start the IRB process, and avoiding common pitfalls will be discussed, as well as specific submission guidelines to help you whether you submit to the BU IRB or the BUMC IRB.
