Webinar: Getting Started with SMART IRB & the Online Reliance System

May 23, 2017 @ 4:30 pm EDT - 5:30 pm EDT

In response to the NIH’s Single IRB Policy, PCORnet is working in harmonization with NCATS, encouraging its collaborators to participate in the Streamlined, Multisite, Accelerated Resources for Trials (SMART) IRB Reliance Platform. The SMART IRB Online Reliance System is a unique tool that helps institutions establish and document single IRB review arrangements. By using this system:

  • Investigators can create and submit requests to use a single IRB for their studies.
  • Collaborating institutions can work together to identify a Reviewing IRB and track and document reliance arrangements on a study-by-study basis.
  • Users have a clear understanding of next steps and are notified when action is required.

Speaker: Nichelle Cobb, PhD, Chief Regulatory Operations Officer for Implementation for SMART IRB, and Director of the Health Science IRBs Office at the University of Wisconsin-Madison will lead the webinars.
