Single IRB

"We needed a single IRB for a multisite trial…

...but our IRB was not equipped to handle all of the logistics. Working With BRANY, we were able to set up the sIRB process for the trial without adding new staff while still maintaining control over the project. BRANY even integrated a Conflict of Interest process."

Our AAHRPP-accredited Single IRB (sIRB) conducts reviews in accordance with NIH policy for multi-site research. Committee members include experts from leading academic medical centers who are well-versed in HHS and FDA regulations. We offer a Connected IRB Model that promotes collaboration and keeps institutional stakeholders informed throughout the study. We can also customize our approach to fit the needs of the multi-center study and participating sites.

IRBs that review social and behavioral health research protocols face unique challenges not generally seen by those that review biomedical research protocols. Our SBER IRB committee members are experienced nurses, social workers, and scientists who understand these challenges. Our connected IRB Model offers an efficient review process, and a customizable approach, which promotes collaboration and communication throughout the study.

Study Start Up

"We were losing possible study opportunities...

... because it was taking too long to finalize contracts and budgets with our limited resources. BRANY provided the expertise we needed to expedite study start-up. Their services allowed us to grow our study pipeline and offer our patients more research opportunities."
