The Chicago Area Institutional Review Board (CHAIRb) serves as the central IRB for CAPriCORN-supported research. When you work with CHAIRb, you’ll receive support from the CAPRiCORN “Front Door” team to launch a coordinated approach that spans institutions. CHAIRb uses the SMART IRB platform to streamline the initiation of multisite studies.
As with other IRBs, CHAIRb helps facilitate the research process by:
CHAIRb board members have broad knowledge of federal regulations, and community members actively participate to ensure patient perspectives are represented. Board diversity, in-person meetings, and the desire to assist new researchers all contribute to benefits of working with CHAIRb.
To initiate a review with CHAIRb, investigators must first complete the “Front Door” form for a project and gain Steering Committee approval.
