The IRB Navigator is a research service offered to investigators who require Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval for their study. Investigators can enjoy personalized assistance with the IRB process, from guidance with the e-Bridge application through help with amendments and reportable events after IRB approval.
The IRB Navigator acts as a liaison between the investigator and the IRB Coordinator to assist in clarifying areas requiring further explanation prior to the application going to the IRB committee, helping to assure the appropriate information is presented to the reviewers and committee chair.
Tracks and troubleshoots delays as the protocol moves through the review process to promote a smooth, successful outcome.
After a study is approved, the IRB Navigator may assist with amendments, continuing progress reports and reportable events.
