If you are submitting an industry-sponsored, multi-center protocol, you have two (2) options. 

  • You can submit it to the BUMC IRB for review in INSPIR as for any other protocol.
  • Or, you can submit it to our outside IRB, Western IRB (WIRB). To see the procedures for submitting to WIRB, click here.

Please note, whichever IRB review process you choose, all contracts for industry-sponsored clinical research must be submitted and managed through the Boston University Office of Sponsored Programs  (617-638-4600).
