IRB SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW MADE THROUGH HUTCH IRB
Navigate to the links on the right side of this page to see details about specific submission types.
All IRB submissions are made through Hutch IRB. Complete study SmartForms and attach all requested documents.
Inquiries or questions can be sent to IRO@fredhutch.org.
Please take careful note of the following requirements. Failure to follow these requirements may result in delays in IRB review:
OnCore/CTMS Data Entry: All new research involving human subjects must be entered into the OnCore Clinical Trials Management System before submitting in Hutch IRB.
Scientific Review Committee (SRC): If your new study or modification requires SRC review, proof of SRC approval must be included with the submission. The IRO cannot accept the submission until SRC approval is included. For questions about SRC, email PRMS@fredhutch.org or see https://www.cancerconsortium.org/research-support/clinical-research-support/study-start-up.html#reviews.
University of Washington Zipline authorization: For investigators whose primary appointments are at UW, documentation of UW Zipline authorization to rely on the Fred Hutch IRB must be included. For more information, see: https://www.washington.edu/research/hsd/is-the-uw-irb-the-right-irb/how-to-ask-for-a-non-uw-irb/
Seattle Children's authorization: For research where Seattle Children's (SCH) is engaged, an “Acknowledgement of Reliance on an External IRB” letter from SCH must be included as part of your submission to the Fred Hutch IRB. For instructions on how to obtain this letter, please review Section A of the SCH-FH Guidance for Relying.
After IRB Review, the IRB will provide you with a written decision via Hutch IRB indicating the IRB determination: Approval, Modifications Required to Secure Approval, Deferral, or Disapproval.
IRB approved study documents will be posted in Hutch IRB. They will be watermarked with an IRB stamp in the system.
