Collaboration of WIRB and the Sponsor/CRO
Guidance on creating a relationship between WIRB and the Sponsor/CRO
When communicating with your sponsor and/or CRO it is important for the research team to inquire how the sponsor/CRO will view working with WIRB. Either they will view working with WIRB as working with a commercial IRB where they will communicate and work with WIRB directly. Or they will view WIRB similar to our local IRB where they will want to work through the research team to communicate with WIRB.
Once you have established how the sponsor/CRO plans on working with you. Please inquire if they would like initial post approval review service from WIRB. This will allow your sponsor/CRO post approval review of all approved documents prior to the release of the documents to the UW. If your sponsor/CRO would like to utilize this service provided by WIRB please have them contact WIRB Client Services at 1-800-562-4789.
