On June 21, 2016, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) released the Final NIH Policy on the Use of a Single Institutional Review Board for Multi-Site Research.
The policy, effective May 25, 2017, requires that all sites participating in human subjects research funded by NIH utilize a single IRB (sIRB). The sIRB will provide IRB review for all participating sites and all sites will be expected to accept the review and approval of the sIRB. Read more about the policy and IU’s response HERE.
