Health Sciences IRBs News
The HS IRBs has several ways to communicate updates on changes to policies and procedures, information regarding our electronic review system (ARROW), and tips and reminders for making the review process smoother.

Health Sciences IRBs Announcements and Listserv Guidance
The HS IRBs hosts two separate listservs: one for general updates and announcements (including the newsletter) and one for people who use commercial IRBs.
The Health Sciences IRBs maintain a listserv to provide study teams and other people on campus with information and updates about the HS IRBs. Listserv announcements may include, but are not limited to, monthly HS-IRBs newsletters, information about the ARROW system, and updates regarding changes to human subjects research regulations, guidance, or policies. The listserv serves as the primary means by which the HS-IRBs provide study teams with important information and study teams are expected to review all HS-IRBs listserv announcements, including monthly newsletters.
Anyone can subscribe to the listserv. To receive general listserv announcements, you MUST subscribe to the listserv by emailing email@example.com. To receive updates about Central IRBs, please email firstname.lastname@example.org requesting to be put on the list.
To be removed from either of these listservs, individuals should submit these requests to the HS-IRBs office by emailing email@example.com. Individuals will not be removed from the listserv unless they are no longer serving as PI or a point of contact on a HS or MR IRB protocol.
This page was created to share the answers to COVID-19 related questions. It will be updated as needed.
The UW IRBs recently launched a project to implement key changes to the IRB review process. Visit this page for updates.
Starting February 2021, a single newsletter will combine updates from key components of the UW’s human research protection program (HRPP), including the IRBs, ARROW, and the IRB Efficiency Project (IEP). This consolidation will provide a more efficient way to keep our research community informed about HRPP news.
