NEW IRB Fee Billing Process: To address concerns about IRB fee billing from a variety of individuals, we’ve established a new IRB fee billing process. IRB fees for initial review, continuing review and administrative fee for initial reviews will be billed directly by the IRB office to the sponsor.

Cristina Dyke, ASO, Clinical Research Unit, will generate an invoice based on submissions received by the IRB office. The invoice will be sent to the sponsor contact listed on the application and copied to the study team contacts at UTHealth. The IRB initial application has been revised to include sponsor contact information for IRB billing purposes. For existing research, Cristina will contact the study team to obtain sponsor contact information.

For questions regarding an IRB fee invoice, contact Cristina Dyke. For general comments or suggestions about the new IRB fee billing process, please do not hesitate to contact us.
