External IRBs

NuHealth currently utilizes two external Institutional Review Boards (IRBs) – Northwell Health (formerly NSLIJ) (the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research) and Biomedical Research Alliance of New York (BRANY) – to review all sponsored research projects and to ensure that all research involving humans conducted at NuHealth are performed in compliance with federal regulations.

NuHealth principal investigators and co-investigators cannot initiate any human subject research until they receive a written IRB approval for the study.

Regardless of the external IRB utilized, all research being sent to Northwell Health (formerly NSLIJ) IRB or BRANY IRB must be authorized by the ORSP.

Northwell Health (formerly NSLIJ) IRB

NuHealth utilizes Northwell Health (formerly NSLIJ) IRB for all sponsored research with the exception of industry-sponsored clinical trials. The industry-sponsored clinical trials are reviewed by BRANY IRB (see below). Please refer to the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research website for their submission process and forms.
