JHM IRB is willing to review requests for reliance on an external IRB as well as requests for JHM to act as the IRB of record. Typically, requests for reliance are submitted to our IRB at two time points:
a) when studies are in their planning stages, and
b) when studies are ready to be submitted for IRB review
Reliance Request Instructions
The first step in the reliance request process is to complete a reliance request. The JHM IRB reliance team will review the information provided in the reliance request and will contact you with next steps.
For studies that are in the planning stage [e.g. you are preparing a grant submission or have just been awarded grant funds but are not yet ready to submit your protocol for IRB review], the JHM IRB will review your reliance request to determine whether we are willing to enter a reliance agreement.
For studies that are ready to be submitted for IRB review, once you have received notification from the JHM IRB reliance team to submit an application, please following the instructions provide below [as applicable]:
