sIRB Alliance at NYU School of Medicine

Through consensus building, the sIRB Alliance has standardized the sIRB review process for NIH-funded multisite studies.

In response to a National Institutes of Health (NIH) policy that proposed the use of a single institutional review board, or sIRB, for multisite research, NYU Langone’s Institutional Review Board (IRB) Operations and Clinical and Translational Science Institute developed the sIRB Alliance at NYU School of Medicine.

Launched in 2018, our alliance aims to establish consensus on standardization of relevant policies, procedures, and information technology to support broad adoption of the NIH sIRB model.

Our members include more than 100 research institutions, some funded by the NIH Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) Program, and Huron Consulting Group.
