NOTE: Please read Dr. Ford's April 20, 2006 letter describing the "Changes in Johns Hopkins Medicine Protocol Review by WIRB"
Types of Studies Reviewed by the JHU/WIRB
Effective January 1, 2007, all new applications for human subjects research must be submitted to the JHM IRBs for review. No new applications will be submitted to WIRB unless they were received in the JHM OHSR prior to January 1, 2007.
The JHM IRB will continue its contractual relationship with WIRB as they will continue to review amendments, change in investigators, continuing reviews, etc. for studies originally approved by them. WIRB will continue to bill sponsors for their review of studies, unless alternate billing/payment arrangements have been approved by the JHM/WIRB Administrative Coordinator. If there are questions regarding WIRB approved studies, please contact WIRB directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 360-252-2500. Information can also be accessed on the WIRB web page www.wirb.com.
