January 25th marked the implementation date for the new NIH single IRB Policy

As we have been advising you for some time now, this sIRB Policy affects multi-site studies involving non-exempt human subjects research funded by NIH, and applies to grant applications with due dates on or after January 25, 2018 and R&D contracts in response to solicitations issued on or after January 25, 2018.

A new Special Topics Section to our updated Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs)  has been added that addresses the process for IRB Reliances and NIH sIRB here at SBU.

If you have any questions about relying on an external IRB, or about having SBU be the IRB of record, for multi-site studies, please contact Ms. Lu-Ann Kozlowski in this office: lu-ann.kozlowski@stonybrook.edu, 631-632-9036.
