Important Reminder for IRB Applicants

The NIH Protecting Human Research Participants training course will no longer be accessible after Sept. 26, 2018.

Wilkes Institutional Review Board (IRB) would like to remind those who plan on submitting an IRB application but do not have a human research protection certificate or have a certificate that will soon expire to complete the training and obtain the NIH certificate by Sept. 26, 2018. Wilkes IRB will continue to accept the NIH certificate, which is usually valid for three years. 

IRB is actively looking into different options to find a replacement for the NIH certificate. Please refer to the IRB website for updates in the upcoming months.
