Department & Ancillary Reviews

October 2014

The Director of a JHUSOM Department may determine when a required departmental review is required prior to submission of an application for IRB review and will appoint an individual or a committee to conduct such reviews. To assure compliance with institutional and regulatory requirements, the Organization has determined that there are several ancillary committee reviews required to assure compliance with institutional or regulatory requirements. The eIRB system has been configured to route an application directly to the required department or ancillary committee for review. For the purposes of review by the Committee on Outside Interests, it is the responsibility of an investigator to make required disclosures of potential conflicts of interest through the eOPC web-based disclosure system.

The chart below identifies the required pre and post department or ancillary reviews that must occur before a research study may begin.
