Although PCORI’s primary purpose is to fund extramural investigators in conducting health research, PCORI’s Science Team needs intermittent, periodic Institutional Review Board (IRB) services for the protection of human subjects participating in research conducted by PCORI staff. Human subjects should be protected in accordance with the Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects (also known as the “Common Rule”). The IRB will provide PCORI with review services including, but not limited to: review of quantitative and qualitative studies such as surveys, focus groups, key informant interviews, secondary data analyses, and evaluations of PCORI programs. These services should include review of study protocols, interview guides, data collection tools, and data analysis plans, in order to protect research participants from risk related to research participation. Services should include standard review, expedited review, and determination of IRB exemption when applicable.
