Single IRB help

The NIH policy requiring single IRB review for multi-site studies goes into effect on September 25, 2017.  In response to this policy, the VHRPP has created a team of experienced analysts to assist investigators with these complex submissions. 

The Single IRB (SIRB) team is available to answer questions and assist with your study that may require single IRB review, whether by Vanderbilt’s IRB or another academic IRB. The team has developed, and continues to develop materials to assist investigators.  

Currently, VHRPP will only cede review or serve as the single IRB for NIH funded research studies in order to comply with the NIH Single IRB mandate.  

If you have questions about using single IRB review for a study, please email SingleIRB@vanderbilt.edu.
