Conducting Planned Emergency Research in the Era of sIRB

Planned emergency research (subject to the 21 CFR 50.24 regulations) is challenging for institutional review boards (IRBs) to review under any circumstance.

Now, the era of single IRB (sIRB) adds the complexity of a designated sIRB reviewing for other institutions in dispersed geographic locations with uniquely different communities.

In this webinar, explore the perspectives of a reviewing IRB and a relying institution, presenting different angles on how best to prepare for conducting planned emergency research in the era of sIRB.

Learning Objectives

Following this webinar, attendees will be able to:
  • Describe the basic regulatory requirements associated with IRB review of planned emergency research
  • Recognize the challenges of reviewing and overseeing planned emergency research as the designated sIRB, including how to:
    • Ensure plans for community consultation and public disclosure are adequate
    • Ensure the plan is properly executed and results are acceptable
    • Incorporate local context in reviewing community consultation plans
  • Outline practical tips for institutions to implement in preparation to conduct or review planned emergency research
