Delay in Protocol Screening for External IRB Reviews
Hello Esteemed Colleagues,
During the next several weeks, the Human Research Protections Program (HRPP) will be undergoing a few changes in personnel that may impact the timeline for screening submissions pertaining to external IRB reviews and reliance agreements. Mr. Logan Clary, the IRB Reliance Coordinator, will be moving on to a new opportunity, and his last day with the HRPP will be July 29, 2022. Please feel free to send him your farewells.
The HRPP has been lucky to acquire the services of Ms. Vanessa Hernandez, MPH. She will be joining the HRPP on July 29, 2022. She has several years of HRPP experience and will be bringing a wealth of knowledge to the role.
In advance, I thank you for your patience and consideration of the recent personnel changes. In the event that you experience an urgent external IRB reliance issue, please contact the HRPP directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and indicate in the subject line of the email the urgency of the issue or request.
