Initial Submission

Quorum holds frequent convened meetings for the review of site submissions. Many site submissions also can be reviewed by Quorum’s expedited review process. If you have questions about the turnaround time for your site submission, please refer to the Quorum Handbook on the OnQ Portal or contact us.

Quorum has four different types of site submissions, each with its own path and unique set of requirements. Please click on your type of study below to access forms, FAQs and submission guidance.

Central Studies

In this case, Quorum is the designated central IRB for the study. Quorum communicates with the sponsor/CRO, and protocol level decisions are made by the sponsor/CRO on behalf of site(s).

Single Site Studies

An investigator may choose Quorum Review IRB even If the sponsor has not designated Quorum as the central ethics review Board for the study. Quorum characterizes this arrangement as a “single site” study.

Observational and Minimal Risk Registries

Quorum offers a simplified process for studies that qualify for Quorum’s “Observational Registry” designation. To qualify for this process, a protocol should not involve any interventions that are greater than minimal risk specifically for the research.

Investigator Generated Studies

Quorum reviews research generated by individual investigators and has a separate set of forms for these studies.
