Department & Ancillary Reviews

May 2020

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.
