Re: Directors of Sponsored Programs Offices--Chair of IRB? David R. Fielder 03 Apr 2002 20:06 EST
I'd be a bit concerned with this approach. We always seek to have an active clinician/researcher be the formal chair ("one of their own"). That person is of course closely supported by appropriate admin staff, who attend meetings and provide non-voting input.
Same model for our IACUC.
