Chesapeake IRB launches CIRBI in Canada

Cloud-based platform integrates operations in the United States and Canada.

Columbia, Maryland – After joining forces in April of this year, Chesapeake IRB and IRB Services, both North American leaders in providing central ethical review services, began making plans to integrate submission processes in the United States and Canada utilizing a common, powerful, proven, electronic platform, CIRBI.

We are pleased to announce that the integration is now complete.

Center for IRB Intelligence (CIRBI)
Chesapeake IRB’s revolutionary platform, the Center for IRB Intelligence (CIRBI), provides cloud-based access to an entire ethics review project. The fully integrated system unifies all Chesapeake IRB and IRB Services functions under one easy-to-use platform.

CIRBI, which already has thousands of sponsors and investigators on board, provides revolutionary capabilities for accelerating cycle time and proactive project management. It is a powerful, elegant, efficient and trusted tool.

Progressive, Creative, Transformative
Jeff Wendel, President of Chesapeake IRB, said the decision to offer CIRBI in the US and Canada represents the progressive, creative approach to problem-solving that characterizes both companies.

“Our decision to integrate CIRBI was driven by our desire to provide North American clients with the benefit of one-click access to study information.”

Jack Corman, Founder and Managing Director of IRB Services, calls CIRBI a truly transformative study management tool.

“CIRBI is the only electronic clinical project management platform that’s genuinely seamless – gives both clients and sites a fully transparent, uniquely empowering experience to drive efficiencies as never before.”
