Department & Ancillary Reviews
The Director of a JHUSOM Department determines whether departmental review is required prior to submission of an application for IRB review and appoints an individual/committee to conduct such reviews. In addition, several ancillary committee reviews may be 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 Conflict of Interest Committee, it is the responsibility of an investigator to make required disclosures of potential conflicts 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. Those indicated as "Concurrent with IRB Review" must be approved prior to final JHM IRB approval.
For studies that require “pre department or ancillary reviews”, those approvals must be secured before the study enters the IRB’s workspace for assignment and review. These approvals will be documented in the eIRB system.
For studies that require “Concurrent with IRB Review”, the appropriate approvals must be secured before the study is approved by the IRB. The IRB staff will review the eIRB application and ensure that the appropriate approvals are in place before the study is approved by the IRB.
For studies that require “post department or ancillary reviews”, the research cannot commence without the “post department or ancillary review” approval. When the PI submits the eIRB application, the PI must attest that he or she will adhere to institutional policies, including the requirement to secure all approvals prior to initiation of research. When the study is approved by the IRB, language is inserted in the IRB approval letter communicating to the PI that research may not commence until the required post approvals are secured. This approval will be directly communicated to the study team by the applicable “post department or ancillary review committee”.
