We are sad to announce the departure of two long-time colleagues, Carol Pech and Brandy Stoffel, who are both leaving the UW to join Huron Consulting Group. Carol has been with the IRB since 2006, first in the IRB Associate Director role, and more recently as the Associate Director of the Reliant Team within the Office of Research Compliance. During her tenure in the IRB, Carol led the development of one of the nation’s first Reliance programs. She showed the foresight to recognize the future needs of study teams looking to conduct multi-site research and the leadership to develop our stellar Reliant program and team, which included Brandy and Mike Bingham. Fortunately for us, as consultants, they will continue to be an invaluable resource to IRB staff and study teams navigating the complex world of single IRB review as we rebuild our reliance team and hire new leadership.
