  3. 3. Example: Maximize use ofregulatory flexibility to identify research that doesn’t require IRB review<br />Impact<br />IRB application & review not required<br />Saves researchers time and resources<br />Faster research startup<br />More efficient use of HSD and IRB resources<br />
  4. 4. Example: (continued)<br />Already accomplished<br />Public data sets, some biol. specimens: no review<br />Pending (spring 2009)<br />Coded data, more biol. specimens: no review<br />HSD staff training: recognize & return unnecessary applications<br />Pending (fall 2009)<br />Reduced need for “dual” review<br />
