Should my industry sponsored research study be submitted to WIRB?
Frequently Asked Question
The Health Sciences Institutional Review Boards (HS IRBs) have contracted with the Western IRB (WIRB) for the review of the majority of industry-sponsored research studies that are not investigator initiated. Industry-sponsored protocols, with some exceptions, will be reviewed by WIRB instead of the HS IRBs.
