Fees for JHM IRB Review

May 2017

Commercially Funded Studies: Effective July 1, 2017, there will be change in the JHM IRB review fees for any commercially funded study with financial support in excess of $10,000. This affects studies submitted on or after the July 1, 2017 date. To help cover the costs of IRB review for complex changes in research and the institutional review required when JHM IRB relies on an external IRB, the IRB review fees will be modified as of July 1, 2017. 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 changes in IRB review fees include the following:
  1. Inclusion of IRB review fees for changes in research for commercially-funded studies requiring convened review*
  2. Inclusion of an administrative fee for processing the local JHM application for commercially-funded studies when JHM is relying on an external IRB

*No fees are assessed for changes in research qualifying for expedited review. 

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.
