Commercial IRBs

The UNMC IRB has reliance agreements with both Advarra and CG/WIRB.  In order for UNMC to defer to either you must have both the CIRB acceptance letter from us and an approval from the external IRB.  You must complete the CIRB application in RSS and satisfy all institutional requirements. This includes, as applicable, Pharmacy & Therapeutics Committee, Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center Scientific Review Committee, investigational device committee, CTMS billing grid, coverage analysis, conflict of interest, and executed contract.

Please see HRPP policy 1.4 for additional information, or call the IRB Office at (402) 559-6463 for more information.
