Facilitated Review

Glossary Term:

Facilitated Review


When an institution uses an external IRB, it remains responsible for the remaining Human Research Protection Program components. UIUC manages these responsibilities with a Facilitated Review application.  The IRB does not review the Facilitated Review application, because the external IRB is conducting IRB review as a part of a reliance agreement. The Facilitated Review application contains only information needed in order for UIUC to meet its regulatory responsibility for the conduct of human subject research by UIUC faculty, staff, and students. OPRS administratively reviews the Facilitated Review application on behalf of UIUC and the HRPP.
