Central IRBs: More Efficient for Whom?

Pearl O’Rourke, M.D., Director of Human Research Affairs at Partners HealthCare Systems, Associate Professor of Pediatrics, Harvard Medical School

 

Central IRBs are increasingly being proposed as a way to increase efficiency of IRB review for multi-site research by limiting duplication of review.  The discussion is complicated by the fact that there are several models of central IRBs in academia and that there has been little experience with anything other than the existing commercial IRB model. 

This talk will include 1) a description of existing models of central IRBs and 2) a discussion of the practical challenges of creating a central IRB in an academic setting.
