Welcome to The MetroHealth System IRB Website
We are here to help you navigate the complex federal, state and local human subjects research regulations so that innovative and collaborative research may flourish. Our mission is to protect the rights and welfare of individuals who participate in research throughout The MetroHealth System. In 2018, we are likely to see significant changes to how human subjects are regulated including changes to the Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects (the “Common Rule”) and a move toward single-IRB oversight. Like other IRBs, we are awaiting additional federal guidance on the implementation of these revised regulations. Once the agency issues guidance, we will prepare and educate our research community. I encourage you to check back for updates.

Relying on Other IRBs- Collaborative Research and Single IRB Review
If your study involve collaboration with any sites and/or personnel outside The MetroHealth System, then it is considered to be multisite research and IRB reliance issues will need to be addresses.
