Cancer Consortium IRB at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center

The Cancer Consortium IRB (CC-IRB) reviews most oncology studies conducted by UW faculty who are members of the Cancer Consortium.  This includes both clinical trials and minimal risk studies.

The Cancer Consortium IRB (CC-IRB) is at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (FHCRC) Institutional Review Office (IRO).  All the FHCRC IRBs serve as the Cancer Consortium IRB.

Cancer Consortium members who are conducting industry-sponsored and industry-initiated clinical trials may choose to have their studies reviewed by either WIRB or the CC-IRB.

To apply to CC-IRB review, contact Clinical Research Support. Clinical Research Support will guide you through the CC-IRB submission process and will coordinate Scientific Review Committee (SRC) review.

Clinical Research Support will sign and send the UW-CC IRB Cover Sheet to hsdinfo@uw.edu on your behalf.

UW Human Subjects Division (HSD) has the cover sheet and a variety of policies, and procedures arranged into short, topic-specific documents.  Please see "Related Documents" on this page.
