As part of the continuing efforts of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) to streamline and unify the submission process to the Institutional Review Boards (IRBs) throughout the system, the Program for the Protection of Human Subjects (PPHS) is pleased to announce that effective May 30, 2017, all Beth Israel human research applications will now follow the ISMMS submission deadline schedule found on the Researcher page on the PPHS website. With this integration, the ability for the IRB to review projects weekly rather than monthly will assist in improved turn-around times.
As a reminder all initial applications require an e-submission through Ideate. If the project was originally submitted in Ideate, its continuation application, any modification submissions, and its final report will also be submitted through Ideate.
For projects that did not begin in Ideate, they will continue to be submitted to IRB@mssm.edu.
As always, the PPHS appreciates your attention to this matter and all that you do to protect the research volunteers who agree to take part in the research conducted by investigators working within the Mount Sinai Health System.
If you have any questions related to the changes above please call the PPHS/IRB office at 212-824-8200.
