New Institutional Review Board Procedures for UI/VAHCS Research

Event Date: 

Fri, Feb 12, 2016 - 9:00am to 10:00am

Event Location: 

HP Smith Auditorium, W256 General Hospital, UIHC


Do you conduct human subjects research studies that have components at both the University of Iowa AND the Iowa City VA Health Care System (VAHCS)?  Or do you plan to do so in the future?  If so, some new IRB procedures apply to you. 

As of February 2015, researchers need to submit separate HawkIRB forms for the study at each location (that is, 2 applications for a single study).

Come to this presentation to learn:

  • How to handle the transition for open, IRB-approved projects;
  • New features in the HawkIRB system that facilitate submitting separate applications to describe research procedures at each site; and
  • The benefits for submitting separate HawkIRB applications for UI and VA components of a research study.
