Ohio University has joined nearly 400 institutions in streamlining IRB oversight for researchers conducting multi-site studies through SMART IRB. Through a SMART IRB Master Common Reciprocal Authorization Agreement, reliance arrangements between collaborating institutions can be determined and documented, paving the way for easier collaboration and adherence to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Policy on the Use of a Single Institutional Review Board for Multi-Site Research.
