Schulman can serve as the IRB of record for an institutional site participating in industry sponsored and federally funded single site and multisite studies.
For institutions conducting research under a Federalwide Assurance (“FWA”), the institution should execute an IRB Authorization Agreement with Schulman. A more extensive agreement can also be established to incorporate the authorization requirements. If an institution relies upon multiple external IRBs, the institution should designate on its FWA the external IRB that reviews the largest percentage of the research covered by the FWA.
For federally funded studies and/or studies conducted under an FWA, the standard submission requirements must be completed along with additional submission requirements for Federally Funded/FWA studies.
Some institutions may have established specific processes with Schulman regarding submissions and study monitoring. Please consult with your institution’s research oversight office for more information.
