Read Frequently Asked Questions

This clinical research training will explain the Institutional Review Board (IRB) models. It will discuss the regulatory framework for IRB review including 21 CFR 50, 56 and 45 CFR 46.

Why Should You Attend:

The number of clinical trials continues to increase. Clinical trials are no longer solely conducted at academic research centers or hospitals. Stand-alone facilities set up to conduct research are being established. Partnerships are being formed between traditional centers and the community. Multi-site studies are becoming the standard. Yet the regulations have not changed and IRBs must interpret what is currently available to them in order to review and approve clinical trials. Included in the mix is pressure for IRBs to move faster and to consolidate their reviews. This has prompted a variety of new IRB review models.

Topic Background:

When IRBs were first mandated in 1974 research was much different. Most research was conducted in a laboratory and funded by NIH. In the last decade, clinical research has taken off bringing with it new challenges and novel research. In order to keep up with the changing demands, IRBs have to work faster and smarter often faced with complex decisions for which there may be no precedent.
