The Institutional Review Board for Health Sciences Research (IRB-HSR) at the University of Virginia (UVA) is responsible for reviewing all medically related research involving human subjects conducted by UVA faculty, employees and students. The IRB-HSR also serves as the HIPAA Privacy Board for research involving Protected Health Information (PHI).
If you would like to rely on a non-UVA IRB to serve as the IRB of Record for a study UVA will review the request to rely on a non-UVA IRB on a case by case basis. Before beginning any submission, contact the IRB-HSR Director 434-924-9634 to discuss the option of relying on a non-UVA IRB. If the use of the non-UVA IRB is agreed upon, the study team will submit an IRB Reliance Agreement Request Form – non-UVA IRB as IRB of Record to the IRB-HSR. The researchers will then proceed to Protocol Builder to create a submission to the IRB-HSR. Even though the UVA IRB-HSR will not serve as the IRB of Record, they are responsible for verifying that other compliance and educational requirements are met.
The IRB-HSR maintains a website, an application program called Protocol Builder and a database called IRB Online which includes information about protocols on which you are working.
