Upcoming Training Sessions

Training Sessions: Single IRB Requirement for Cooperative Research(JHM IRB)

Since January 25, 2018, the NIH has required use of a Single IRB [sIRB] for the review of NIH-funded multisite studies where each site will conduct the same protocol involving non-exempt human subjects research. The Revised Common Rule, which sets forth federal regulatory requirements regarding Human Subjects Protections, went into effect on January 21, 2019 and extends the sIRB review requirement to all “cooperative research” [Research involving one or more institutions] funded by a federal agency that is a signatory to the rule. The required implementation date for this provision is January 20, 2019.

This purpose of this training opportunity is to provide an overview of the sIRB requirements, describe the process for requesting reliance on JHM IRB or an External IRB, and to discuss how the cooperative research provision affects new and existing human research studies.

Training Sessions: Good Clinical Practice (GCP) Fundamentals: Understanding and Applying GCP to Human Subjects Research (JHM IRB)

Good Clinical Practice or ‘GCP’ training for investigators and study-team members is increasing becoming required by institutions, sponsors, and the NIH.  This 90 minute course will explain the elements of the International Conference for Harmonization’s (ICH) principles and specific guidelines for Good Clinical Practice.  Attendees will be introduced to the GCP Principles, and will explore investigator responsibilities in human subject research, focusing on the areas of trial conduct (experience, resources, and physician duties); performance (communication with the IRB, protocol compliance, and investigational product management); ethical research (safety oversight and informed consent); and recording/reporting (data acquisition, progress summaries, and safety-event reporting).
