Emergency Response IRB
In early March 2020, at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States, the JHM Office of Human Subjects Research began to strategize ways to review COVID-19 related research in a timely and systematic manner. To support the effort, a group of experts drawn from the existing JHM IRB membership were formulated to review COVID-19 related research.
JHM IRB 3 along with experts drawn from the other JHM committees who serve as alternates for JHM IRB 3 members meet regularly as the Emergency Response IRB.
The members have expertise in a number of areas including infectious diseases, pharmacy and therapeutics, research ethics and general internal medicine. The Emergency Response IRB is dedicated to the review of COVID-19 related new protocol applications, and change in research applications for currently approved research adding some aspect of COVID-19 related research.
