Central IRB Information (External IRBs)

WORKING WITH CENTRAL IRBs

U-M has finalized Master Services Agreements with several IRBs:

  • Chesapeake IRB
  • NCI CIRB (CIRB)
  • Quorum Review IRB
  • Schulman Associates IRB
  • Western IRB (WIRB)

Under these Agreements, U-M may cede regulatory oversight of new, industry-sponsored, Phase 3 or 4 multi-site trials to one of these central IRBs. 

Study teams will need to complete the "Request Review by a Non-UM IRB" (AKA, Ceding) Application within eResearch and receive an acknowledgement letter in addition to completing the electronic site application for the central IRB of choice.  Study teams must receive the U-M acknowledgement letter and the central IRB approval notice before beginning any research related activities.
