The ITHS CRES is a continuing education and networking series for research coordinators and other research staff interested in clinical research topics. This 2-hour in‐person event is held between Fred Hutch, Seattle Children’s, and the University of Washington. The first half of each event focuses on the presentation of a clinical research topic area, with the second half featuring networking and interaction with fellow attendees to discuss presentation points, exchange ideas, and share experiences.
CRES is designed for research professionals of all levels of experience who perform research coordination duties in the health sciences fields at:
CRES is an in‐person event hosted in Seattle. The continuing education part of CRES is webcast live for off‐site participants. We also post handouts on the ITHS website to prompt reflections and to facilitate networking conversations offline.

Single IRB (sIRB) review is now mandated for most federally-funded research involving human subjects. The policy requires the use of one IRB to accomplish IRB review and approval for all domestic sites. The goal of this requirement is to enhance and streamline the IRB review process for multi-site research so that research can proceed as quickly as possible without compromising ethical principles and protections for human research participants. Implementing this policy will require IRBs and investigators to significantly rethink and restructure their processes for multi-site research.
This session will discuss the different sIRB policies, how they impact investigators at the time they are writing grants and after the grant is funded, changes IRBs are making to implement single IRB review, and the resources investigators and their teams will need to successfully manage a multi-site study under single IRB review.
By the end of this session, you will be able to:
Adrienne Meyer, MPA, CIP, is the Assistant Director of Reliances in the Human Subjects Division at the University of Washington (UW).
