New HRPP Manual Section: Use of a Single IRB

March 26, 2018

The Final NIH Policy on Use of a Single IRB for Multi-Site Research establishes the expectation that all domestic sites participating in multi-site studies involving non-exempt human subjects research funded by NIH will use a single Institutional Review Board (sIRB) (NOT-OD-16-094). The new HRPP Manual Section, 2-2-F-iii, Use of a Single IRB (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, National Institutes of Health), provides MSU requirements related to the selection of the sIRB and costs.
