On April 24th, we invited you and other Canadian researchers to participate in a survey focused on selection criteria for central IRBs/REBs in Canada.

The response we received was impressive.  The analysis has been completed and we would like to share the results of this unique and important survey with you.

Simply click on the link below to download a copy of the detailed report to discover what Canadian researchers think about accreditation, cultural diversity, and Canadian ownership and management of a central IRB/REB.

We trust that the findings contained in the report will be of value to you, and invite you to share the report with your colleagues.
