Webinar: (01-2023) Is your IRB/HRPP ready? Understanding the role of the IRB/HRPP in implementation of NIH's Data Management & Sharing Policy


NIH’s New Data Management and Sharing (DMS) Policy requires inclusion of a data management and sharing plan with applications for NIH funding submitted on or after January 25, 2023.

This session will highlight aspects of this new policy that impact IRBs and HRPPs and provide guidance on approaches organizations might adopt to ensure effective implementation of the policy at their own institutions.

This session will explore strategies for engaging HRPP stakeholders and discuss key compliance approaches and touchpoints over the life of a research project. Case examples will be used to highlight scenarios related to the NIH DMS Policy that may pose ethical challenges for IRBs/HRPPs and discuss ways in which organizations may address these challenges.

What will I learn?

  • Gain an understanding of NIH’s new Data Management and Sharing Policy and key considerations for IRBs/HRPPs
  • Learn about strategies and resources for the IRB/HRPP to support researcher and institutional compliance with the policy requirements
  • Through case-based discussion, understand unique ethical challenges that may arise for IRBs/HRPPs while supporting policy implementation and identify solutions for those challenges.
