Collaborations and Reciprocities
BSPH, the JHU Homewood IRB and JHU School of Medicine have in place a reciprocity agreement to eliminate redundant reviews when BSPH, Homewood, and JHSOM faculty collaborate. The PI of such projects should submit the research application to the IRB associated with his/her primary appointment.
BSPH and the Baltimore City Health Department have in place an agreement which permits the BSPH IRB to serve as the IRB of record for BSPH/BCHD collaborative studies taking place in BCHD sites or with BCHD investigators. Once the BSPH IRB approves the study, the BCHD official responsible for research must review the study before it may proceed.
