|Now is the Time to Comment on Proposed Rules to Streamline Human Protections |
The official Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) on improving the efficiencies of clinical fesearch is now available for public comment. The proposed rules include eliminating IRB review of certain types of minimally risky research, streamlining informed consent forms, and increased utilization of CIRBs.
