This month’s Feature Article contains important information in two parts. The first part provides an overview of the major changes in the recently updated INSPIR application. It is our hope that these changes will benefit both you and the BU/BMC IRB. The second part of the Feature Article explains how to set up your INSPIR application to request review of your research by an external IRB, or to have the BU/BMC IRB provide review for external investigators added to your research.
