Understanding the role of the IRB
Sharing data and collaborating with other investigators offers many benefits for academic research institutions. These include advancing rigorous and reproducible research, promoting public trust, increasing transparency, and maximizing research participant contributions.
The National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) Data Management and Sharing Policy (DMSP) is designed to foster safe collaboration by guiding researchers on managing and sharing data in line with rising privacy and transparency standards.
Watch this webinar recording exploring what institutional research board (IRB) administrators need to know about the NIH DMSP requirements, such as the roles and responsibilities of the IRB, principal investigators, and institution — hosted by Huron’s Niyati Harnejaand, Candi Loeb, and Christina Moord.
