Submitting to
Commercial IRBs

The Office of Human Research now has service agreements with several independent, commercial IRBs: Quorum Review IRB, Schulman Associates IRB, and Western IRB (WIRB). 

These agreements allow Jefferson investigators to apply directly to the commercial IRB to join an existing study that has already received IRB approval. Currently, this option is open for select industry-sponsored phase 1, 2, 3, and 4 clinical trials.

OHR will make the final decision on a study-by-study basis as to whether it will permit an investigator to apply to the commercial IRB.

The Jefferson contact for use of commercial IRBs is Kyle Conner: Kyle.Conner@jefferson.edu or 215-503-8966.
