SMART IRB is a platform designed to ease common challenges associated with initiating multisite research.  Important note: SMART IRB is not an actual IRB that provides regulatory approval. SMART IRB provides a roadmap for institutions to implement the Single IRB Review requirements. Through a flexible master IRB reliance agreement, standard operating procedures, and complementary tools and resources, SMART IRB supports and encourages collaboration and harmonization across the nation.

SMART IRB is funded by the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS). For more information, visit SMART IRB.

SMART IRB has released a video to help with understanding the IRB process. Watch the video to learn more. Also, check out the links to the right of this page!
