Welcome to the New IEP and IRBs Newsletter

September 2020

Welcome to our new newsletter for the IRB Efficiency Project (IEP) and IRBs! The purpose of this combined newsletter is to provide the research community with important IEP and IRB updates in one place. This will be a monthly newsletter that will be distributed through both the HS/MR and ED/SBS IRBs’ listservs as well as being posted on the IEP website.
