The goal of the IRB Transformation is to continue to align with national accreditation standards, streamline processes, align operations and policies with industry best practices and regulatory requirements, and improve the support provided to investigators conducting human subjects research.

The Transformation will introduce the HRPP Toolkit, a comprehensive set of workflows, standard operating procedures, checklists, worksheets, and templates.

The UA IRB Transformation team will offer training on the HRPP Toolkit this spring.
