The University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) has contracted with Western IRB (WIRB), an established and AAHRPP Accredited independent IRB, for the review of industry-sponsored and industry-initiated research studies. As of February 1, 2010, UIC investigators will have the option of submitting industry-sponsored clinical trials, with some exceptions, to the WIRB for review and approval instead of the UIC IRBs.

Please note that the fees charged for Quorum IRB Review may change based on business decisions by Quorum IRB.  While OPRS will try to provide advance notice of any increases, this should be accounted for in budget planning.
