Fred Hutch and Seattle Children’s have renegotiated the IRB Cooperative Review Agreement between our institutions. The Cooperative Review Agreement allows Fred Hutch and Seattle Children’s to rely on each other's IRB review for multiple projects without a protocol-specific authorization agreement. In most cases this eliminates the need for duplicate IRB review when both institutions are engaged in a research project.
The revised agreement simplifies the decision-making process regarding which institution’s IRB will conduct the review when both Fred Hutch and Seattle Children’s are engaged. Moving forward, the institution of the Lead Protocol PI’s primary appointment will serve as the IRB of record for both institutions. (As a reminder, “primary appointment” refers to the institution that signs the PI’s paycheck.)
Reminders: Both Fred Hutch and Seattle Children’s require local sign-off prior to relying on an external IRB.
