Researchers often ask whether the University of Pittsburgh will consider use of a central IRB mechanism for review of a single project or group of projects. This interactive session will provide a brief overview of what is a central IRB, explain the process of how Pitt determines the acceptability of a central IRB model, identify currently approved central IRB mechanisms available at our institution and describe the submission process.
