Institutional Review Board (IRB)
The Office of Research provides administrative support to the Human Research and Investigation Committee (HRIC). The HRIC is responsible for the review and approval of human subject research conducted by investigators at Newton-Wellesley Hospital. The average timeline from submission to review is four (4) weeks. Sponsors may assist the PI in preparing the IRB submission or the CTP staff can coordinate and assist in the preparation.
The HRIC is one component of Newton-Wellesley Hospital's Human Research Protection Program. In 2004, our Human Research Protection Program was awarded accreditation by the Council on Accreditation of the Association for the Accreditation of Human Research Protection Programs, Inc. (AAHRPP); we have maintained our full accreditation status since 2004. We voluntarily sought accreditation as a method of assuring our clinical research program has the highest protection of the rights and safety of human research subjects.
