Spring 2022 Letter from the IRB Chair

Welcome to Letter from the IRB Chair, we hope each and every one of you is emerging from the demands and stresses of the past two years successfully and healthfully. As chair, I will be communicating with you on a quarterly basis, providing my perspective on the workings of the IRB. Our goal for 2022 is to provide a multitude of resources and information to assist you with your study submissions. This will take the form of weekly articles and videos.

We are posting weekly mini articles (2-3 minute read time) written by the Solutions IRB team on the Solutions IRB Blog and the Solutions IRB LinkedIn page. We are posting weekly mini videos (10-15 minute viewing time) by the IRB Chair and Admin team on the Solutions IRB LinkedIn page.

Some of the topics for 2022 will include:
• Elements of consent
• Waiver of consent options
• Levels of review
• Review categories
• Research with vulnerable populations
• Tips for an efficient IRB review

Please follow us on LinkedIn to stay up-to-date with our postings and announcements.

If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions for articles and videos, please email us as: reviews@solutionsirb.com
