USF investigators are encouraged to use the Johns Hopkins MedicineAll Children's Hospital (ACH) IRB for studies that will be conducted with ACH patients and/or at ACH or ACH and USF sites. This will prevent submission of applications to both IRBs as the USF IRB can rely upon the approval of the ACH IRB. Depending on the level of risk, there may be studies that require both ACH IRB and USF IRB approval, which will be determined by the ACH IRB.
The ACH IRB uses iRIS for electronic submission of all IRB applications. Training is required prior to using iRIS. To register for the iRIS training please contact Sue Ellie, (727) 767-4275 or firstname.lastname@example.org. To register for iRIS please contact Sandy Wismer, (727) 767-4813 or email@example.com.
