IRB Review Fees at Swedish Medical Center

Feb 9, 2010 at 3:39pm
The UW IRB has a cooperative agreement with the Swedish Medical Center IRB:   UW researchers who are engaged in research at Swedish may qualify to have their IRB review performed by the Swedish IRB instead of the UW IRB.   The criteria for moving the review to the Swedish IRB are summarized on the HSD website at: https://www.washington.edu/research/hsd/topics/Cooperative+Agreements The Swedish IRB does charge a fee for the review of studies funded by federal grants that do not send indirect costs to Swedish or that are funded by industry.  The fee schedule was revised on January 1, 2010, to the following:
IRB review, cooperative initial review            $500
IRB review, cooperative continuing review     $250

There is no charge for the review of modifications, adverse event reports, or reports of protocol deviations or violations.
