The Importance of Institutional Review Boards

It is essential to have an independent ethical review process to protect the participant’s rights, safety, and welfare. An IRB ensures that the potential benefits of the research outweigh the risks and that informed consent is obtained from all participants. The IRB process plays a crucial role in upholding ethical principles in research, protecting human subjects’ rights, and ensuring scientific research’s integrity. Without an IRB’s ethical review process, researchers risk compromising the safety and welfare of their participants, damaging public trust in the scientific community, and potentially facing legal and professional consequences.

Sitero’s IRB provides this vital oversight, reviewing research proposals to ensure they are designed in an ethically sound manner and that the risks to subjects are minimized.

SMART IRB & Reliance Agreements

Sitero IRB is a participating member of SMART IRB. SMART IRB is a flexible master reliance agreement designed to harmonize and streamline the IRB review process for multisite studies while ensuring the highest level of protection for research participants.

Sitero IRB can serve as the IRB of record for practice-based research programs, academic institutions, and hospital systems if there is no local IRB with jurisdiction or the local IRB has jurisdiction but defers its jurisdiction to Sitero IRB in writing through an authorization agreement.

Investigators who conduct research at institutions with a local IRB and are asking for Sitero IRB coverage should be aware of any obligations or limitations that may require the use of that institution’s IRB.
