Health Sciences IRBs News
The HS IRBs has several ways to communicate updates on changes to policies and procedures, information regarding the new electronic review system (ARROW), and tips and reminders for making the review process smoother.
Health Sciences IRBs Announcements and Listserv Guidance
The HS IRBs host three separate listservs: one for general updates and announcements (including the newsletter), one for people who work in cancer research and one for people who use Western IRB (WIRB).
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.
The HS IRBs issues a newsletter every-other month to the UW Carbone Cancer Center (UWCCC) that includes updates and reminders on policies and procedures that are pertinent to human subjects research being done in the UWCCC. This newsletter also will provide UWCCC study teams with consistent and important information related to human subjects protection policies, regulations and guidance.
Anyone can subscribe to the listserv. To receive general listserv announcements, you MUST subscribe to the listserv by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. To receive UWCCC newsletter announcements, you MUST subscribed by emailing email@example.com.
To be removed from either of these listservs, individuals should submit these requests to the HS-IRBs office by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
