The Partnership allows either Meriter IRB or UW-Madison Health Sciences IRB to serve as the IRB of record for research conducted at both institutions by a UW affiliated researcher. The partnership means that after one of the institutions defers IRB oversight to the other, the researcher reports to only the IRB of oversight for the life of the research.
