CRS IRB

Welcome

CRS has a commitment to translating research into action.  Many times, research requires an IRB, or Institutional Review Board.  IRBs were traditionally created to protect medical research subjects; however, they are often used in community settings as well.  Given their origins in the biomedical field, many IRBs have not tailored their processes to community-level research.  CRS is aiming to change that - creating an IRB process made exclusively for individuals working at the community level.  

DO I NEED AN IRB REVIEW?

  • There are several aspects to consider when deciding to submit an IRB application.  First, review the CRS Fact Sheet "Research vs. Evaluation."

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF IRB REVIEWS?

  • Use the following checklists to learn more about different types of IRB reviews:

"CRS IRB Exemption Checklist" and "CRS IRB Expedited Checklist."

  • Call CRS for further clarification (303-860-1705) and we can answer any questions you may have.

HOW DO I COMPLETE AN APPLICATION?

  • Next, complete an "Application for Protocol Review."
