Service description

All investigator-initiated clinical trials that have not undergone prior scientific review are routed to CRS to undergo scientific review as a part of the HSC IRB review process. This is an automatic process initiated by the IRB and cannot be requested by study teams on an adhoc basis at this time.

Benefits for users

CRS aims to improve scientific rigor, methodological and statistical validity, and operational feasibility by providing useful feedback to investigators and study teams prior to IRB submission.
