The Einstein Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) promotes and protects the rights and welfare of all human research participants. Affiliated organizations include all of the colleges and schools of Yeshiva University (FWA00000140, expires: 9/21/2013), Montefiore Medical Center (FWA00002558, expires: 2/8/2014), Jacobi Medical Center and North Central Bronx Hospital (FWA00009807, expires: 9/10/2017). Einstein's two IRBs (formerly known as the Committee on Clinical Investigations (CCI) and the Montefiore Medical Center IRB) facilitate excellence in human research by extending personalized guidance and support to the research community through timely and high quality service, education, review, and monitoring.
Exempt and Expedited studies are submitted through iRIS, the IRB's new online/paperless application system (and the IRB office assigns each protocol to an IRB). Full board studies are assigned to an IRB based on payroll and extramural support. PIs on the payroll of Yeshiva University and NYMA always submit their research to the East Campus IRB. Montefiore PIs submit to the East Campus when the research is supported by NIH and to the West Campus IRB in all other cases.
|Selection of IRB
||Federal (e.g. NIH) or Foundation Funded
||Private Industry Funded or Unfunded
All Key Personnel (individual who contribute in a substantive way to the development or execution of a protocol, or are involved in the consent process) are required to complete the Human Subjects Research Education.
All federal grant applications for Yeshiva University and Montefiore PIs are submitted through Einstein. At Einstein, grants are prepared and routed for approval through Cayuse. For Cayuse support, please contact your departmental administrator or the Office of Grant Support. For guidance on choosing the right FWA #, see the Merger FAQs.

Private Industry Contracts
The IRB charges a one-time fee of $3,000 for the review of studies supported by private industry. The Office of Clinical Trials facilitates the review and negotiation of all clinical trial agreements for protocols sponsored by private industry.
