IRB Services (Institutional Review Board Services), a global provider of research ethics review and related services for the clinical research and behavioral science industries, has selected Intralinks VIA to support all of its secure beyond the firewall collaboration needs. Intralinks is a global SaaS provider of inter-enterprise content management and collaboration solutions.
IRB Services independently reviews, monitors and provides oversight of biomedical and behavioral research involving humans, working with many of the largest pharmaceutical CROs. IRB Services will be the first central institutional review board to license Intralinks VIA to facilitate the transfer of sensitive documents that are required during the approval process. This approval process happens during all phases of research in a clinical trial's lifecycle and is essential to the commencement of a new or ongoing project.
"More and more clients have been requesting secure portals to help with the exchange of regulatory documents required during the clinical trial process," said Simon A. Corman, director, business operations at IRB Services. "As the first central IRB to implement the Intralinks VIA solution, we will be able to leverage the existing widespread Intralinks user base to maximize efficiencies and further solidify our position as a market leader. Utilizing a collaboration platform that we can trust with sensitive information around clinical trials on a global scale will help bolster our services in the eyes of our clients and accelerate the clinical trial process."
