Single IRB Review

What is Single IRB?

The basis for the Single IRB Model is to allow multiple institutions that are conducting the same protocol to use a single IRB for review, instead of using multiple IRBs to review the research at the sites individually.  The Single IRB Model has been in use for many years, across a wide variety of studies and circumstances.

At the University of Utah, we feel that while Single IRB Review may help to streamline the study initiation process, it is important to understand all of the components of the Single IRB model that must be completed beyond just the IRB review.  Efficient performance of all stages of study initiation and conduct will help to ensure multi-site research is effective and expeditious.
