A system solution for institutions to effectively implement and manage their IRB roles under varied single IRB (sIRB) models, a collaborative effort of Washington University in St. Louis and The University of Iowa.
The myProject system will be innovative as the first system that...
- provides a costing model tool for sIRB review,
- creates a tool for use by both researchers and administrators that organizes, manages, and provides searchable access to operating procedures and reliance terms impacting the conduct of specific research protocols, and
- is a unique framework for managing and tracking participating sites, research consortia, and sIRBs under a project management framework.
The components will be developed such that they can operate as stand-alone tools or in combination.
To ensure use of best practices in the efficient and robust IT development process, a diverse group of leaders and experts in IRB review and operations as well as multi-site research will provide input on usability and regulatory issues. Additionally, there will be opportunities during the course of development for other CTSA institutions to provide feedback.
