Staring January 1st, study teams will be required to have a consultation with RELIANT when asking the UW to serve as the reviewing IRB for external sites. This consultation must occur prior to grant or IRB application submission. If a consultation has not occurred, the UW cannot guarantee it will serve as the sIRB. If the UW is not the best option for serving as the sIRB, RELIANT will assist study teams in identifying a reviewing IRB for their study. Our consultation request form can be found here.
