IRB Town Hall Brown Bag Session (Central IRB Use)

Friday, 16 December, 2016

“SLU IRB Town Hall: Central IRB Use” will be offered at the Medical Center (south campus) from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 16, in the Learning Resources Center (LRC), Room 108.

Join the IRB Office for its second Town Hall Brown Bag session on Central IRB Use, designed to facilitate conversation between the investigator community and the IRB Office regarding the current state and activities of the Central IRB Reliance program, which allows units conducting multi-site, industry-sponsored clinical trials to rely on an external central IRB under qualifying circumstances.
This session will include a brief overview of the program, related performance metrics and anticipated changes in 2017. The presentation will be followed by an open forum discussion of investigator's experiences using the program. What parts of the program work well? What changes to the process could improve your experience or the value and effectiveness of the program? 
Bring your questions, comments and ideas to share, and don't forget to bring your lunch or a snack.

The IRB’s Brown Bag series is designed to provide the SLU research community with in-depth understanding and discussion concerning the latest policies, procedures, and requirements pertaining to human subjects research.

Brown Bag sessions are for SLU research professionals and coordinators, and any student, staff, or faculty member who is looking for continuing IRB education.
