In an effort to enhance IntegReview’s Human Research Protection Program (HRPP), we would like to provide investigators with the responsibilities we feel are necessary to protect the welfare and safety of research participants while conducting research.
Please view the links below to obtain information on investigator responsibilities, IntegReview reporting requirements, investigator training, and other useful links regarding federal regulations and guidance on conducting research.
Investigators and study staff may obtain answers to questions, express concerns, and convey suggestions regarding IntegReview’s Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) via e-mail to Betty Olivarez, Director of Compliance or by dialing (512) 326-3001, extension 211.
Become a Member of the SMART IRB Platform
There are currently over 400 participating institutions involved in the SMART IRB platform....Integreview IRB is one of them.
Launched in 2016, SMART IRB is funded by the NIH Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) Program. The platform is intended to serve as a roadmap for institutions to implement the NIH Policy on the Use of a Single Institutional Review Board for Multisite Research. SMART IRB was designed to harmonize and streamline the IRB review process for multisite studies, while ensuring a high level of protection for research participants.
One of SMART IRBs goals is Harmonization...to implement strategic, efficient, and cooperative approaches to single IRB review between institutions and IRBs. IntegReview IRB had an interest in joining this platform to help eliminate the burden and challenges that emerge from implementing single IRB reviews. One of the ways to aid in this goal is by the use of their Online Reliance System, which is used to request, track and document reliance arrangements on a study-by- study basis.
