Update to CIRB Study Closure and Transfer of Review Responsibilities Worksheet

CIRB has made a significant enhancement to the Study Closure and Transfer of Review Responsibilities worksheet. This worksheet has been modified to allow multiple studies as part of a single submission and will reduce the need for individual worksheet submissions for each affected study, thus reducing the administrative burden on local site staff.


A new How to Submit a Study Closure and Transfer of Review Responsibilities Worksheet quick guide has been posted to the NCI CIRB website to assist users. If you have any questions, please contact the CIRB Helpdesk: ncicirbcontact@emmes.com or 1-888-657-3711.
