Western Institutional Review Board (WIRB)

Drexel University has an agreement in place authorizing the Western Institutional Review Board (WIRB) to review and approve industry sponsored multicenter clinical trials involving adult medical subjects on behalf of our investigators.   Industry sponsored multicenter clinical trials enrolling children will be reviewed by the Drexel University IRB #4.

All new submissions to WIRB for review must be made to the Human Research Protection Program; the submission is to be provided to the HRPP in an “electronic” format. The electronic (paperless) application format coincides with and enhances the pending implementation of the Coeus electronic application program.
