IRBs play an important role in the protection of human subjects. The federal regulations define the IRB’s role, authority, and composition requirements. All members must complete the Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure Agreement.
IRB members must complete the online CITI program courses. During CITI registration, you will be prompted to add courses. Select the courses required for IRB members. After you select the courses, the next screen will prompt you to select ‘Basic’ or ‘Refresher’. Choose ‘Basic’ if this is your first time taking a course under Drexel. Choose ‘Refresher’ if you have already been certified in a basic course under Drexel. On the next page, select the group called ‘IRB/Research Administration’. Note: please be sure to set your CITI preferred email address to your Drexel email. (For any CITI account previously registered with a non-Drexel email address, please take the steps outlined in the ORI CITI Update Email SOP to update your preferred address to your Drexel email.)

IRB Member Training
Serving as an IRB Committee member is a generous contribution to Drexel and its community. The Committee’s focus is to protect the safety and well-being of research subjects. This work requires that IRB members receive regular training in addition to maintaining current CITI certifications. The HRPP provides opportunities for education and discussion on a regular basis. IRB members are required to participate whenever possible.
