Fees for JHM IRB Review

July 2013

Commercially Funded Studies: Effective 3/1/2012, there will be an increase in the JHM IRB review fees for any commercially funded study with financial support in excess of $10,000. This affects studies submitted and/or approved on or after the March 1, 2012 date. For studies approved prior to 3/1/2012, continuing review fees will remain at the previous level of $1000.  As in the past, the JHM IRB only charges for initial and annual continuing reviews, not for changes in research. Federally funded studies and unsponsored studies are not charged review fees. The JHM IRB review fees will be charged against the study internal order number or to the designated departmental/divisional internal order at the time of IRB approval.

The JHM IRB review fees for commercially funded human subjects research studies are listed in the chart below. See the memo from Daniel Ford, M.D., M.P.H. regarding the increase.

WIRB Studies: Effective October 1, 2013 any remaining open studies at WIRB initially submitted by JHU SOM investigators must be converted to eIRB studies and then terminated at WIRB. The only exceptions to this are studies currently being directly billed to the study sponsors. The JHU SOM will not pay any WIRB fees effective 10/1/13.
