AbstractThe article presents a study that evaluated the effect of investigator attendance on the efficiency of Institutional Review Board (IRB) review process in the U.S. The study involves a retrospective review of IRB records as research protocols from the four IRB of Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions (JHMI) in Maryland. It states that the principal investigator's (PI) presence alone was not responsible for the change, but indicates that it might play a role in IRB efficiency.
