My study is going to be reviewed by WIRB, do I still need to submit my protocol and consent form to the OSU IRB?
  • Yes!  Per the Office of Responsible Research Practices (ORRP), submission to WIRB cannot proceed until the WIRB Protocol Analyst at ORRP reviews and approves the submission materials.  See here for more information on ORRP's WIRB policy.

My study has been approved by WIRB.  Do I need to submit any additional documentation to the OSU IRB?
  • Yes, if a modification to the research includes changes in PI, co-investigator or key personnel, ORRP must be notified when submitting this change to WIRB. If a modification occurs to the Ohio State required consent template language (e.g. compensation for injury, HIPAA, costs), the submission must be sent to ORRP prior to submission to WIRB to ensure that the institution is in agreement with proposed language.  Please reference ORRP’s WIRB policy for additional information.
