Cincinnati-based Schulman Associates IRB has expanded its institutional review board (IRB) services into Canada. For North American studies, which are conducted in both the U.S. and Canada, Canadian and U.S. board members will review the research together to maintain consistency.
“Our clients have asked us to provide review services in Canada. Now that our Canadian IRB is operational, Schulman can provide the same high quality review for Canadian research as it has provided in the U.S. for the past 26 years,” said John Isidor, Schulman’s CEO.
Schulman provides clients conducting Canadian studies with access to its WebPortal 2.0 service. WebPortal 2.0 interfaces directly with Schulman’s internal system to provide sponsors and CROs with real-time updates on review status and timelines.
Schulman’s Canadian office is located in Toronto. French-speaking support is available for Canadian studies. Schulman’s U.S. IRB is fully accredited by the Association for Accreditation of Human Research Protection Programs ( AAHRPP).
