Consultations provide an opportunity for researchers to meet in-person or via phone with an experienced HS-IRBs staff reviewer. The purpose is to provide education and guidance to research teams prior to submission of IRB applications, or before making major changes to IRB-approved studies. Consultations are available upon request for any type of study, but we especially recommend them for:

  • Researchers new to the HS-IRBs review process that would like additional guidance before submitting their first IRB application.
  • Study teams planning multisite or complex projects.
  • Study teams considering making major changes to IRB-approved studies.
