Using a Single IRB (sIRB) Mechanism

December 6, 2018 -

12:00pm to 1:00pm


The NIH sIRB mandate went into effect for all NIH-funded, multi-center protocols on January 25, 2018. The process for using a sIRB has been quickly evolving on both the local and national level.

You should consider attending this workshop if you are a Research Administrator, Principal Investigator or Project Coordinator that is involved with NIH-funded, multi-center research. The workshop will provide an overview of the sIRB mandate and the newly evolved process for requesting reliance at Pitt.
