10 Tips for Submitting to the IRB and Starting your Study

In performing human subjects’ research, an investigator has to send his/her protocol to the Institutional Review Boards, IRB, for approval. Often seen as "black holes"  that one submits to and waits for a determination, submitting a study to Institutional Review Boards can seem like a daunting and intimidating task. Thus, investigators are always looking for tips and strategies that will make this submission process less puzzling and faster.

Our expert speaker Sarah Fowler-Dixon, in this power packed session, helps you demystify the intricacies of IRB submission. You get tips on simple steps that may be taken by the investigator/research team in making his/her submission more IRB ready and thus receiving fewer contingencies which in turn accelerates the IRB review and approval process.

You get training on IRB requirements with relevant definitions, US Federal Regulations, ethical Codes, relevant guidance from NIH, OHRP, and ICH and information for international research.
