Background l.jpg

Background

HSS

Office of Health, Safety and Security

Central Beryllium IRB (CBeIRB)

  • Established in 2001

  • Jointly funded by DOE’s Office of Health, Safety, and Security (HSS) and Office of Science (SC)

  • Brought expertise and consistency to the review of all DOE-funded/conducted beryllium HS research

  • As a result, beryllium research and former worker medical screening projects now have informational materials and consent forms that are clear, accurate, and consistent re: CBD, Be sensitization, benefits and risks of screening, EEOICPA, etc.


Opportunity scope l.jpg

Opportunity - Scope

HSS

Office of Health, Safety and Security

Expand IRB Focus

  • Continue review of all beryllium-related HS research

  • Become DOE IRB of record for entire Former Worker Medical Screening Program (recommended by reviewers of DOE HQ HSPP, October 2008)

  • Other areas in the future?


Opportunity membership l.jpg

Opportunity - Membership

HSS

Office of Health, Safety and Security

Expand IRB Membership

  • Maintain core membership of experts in occupational medicine, industrial hygiene, immunology, bioethics, epidemiology, and public health, as well as community members

  • Expand number of DOE site IRBs represented (3 members and 3 alternates from other DOE sites, who become members as members rotate off)

  • Expand number of DOE workers represented (3 members and 3 alternates, who also become members as worker representative members rotate off)

  • Include representation from FWP screening providers (2, with 2 alternates)

  • Other areas in the future?.


Opportunity doe site irbs l.jpg

Opportunity –DOE Site IRBs

HSS

Office of Health, Safety and Security

- Greater opportunity to serve on C DOE IRB

- Less burden with regard to Former Worker Medical Screening Program

  • Initial and continuing review by DOE site IRB(s) no longer necessary

  • C DOE IRB to make available copies of all materials submitted by PI, as well as IRB approval(s), on IRB Net

    - Potential for additional expansion in scope means that the C DOE IRB could assist Site IRBs in the future with addressing future complex-wide issues/challenges (i.e., nanotechnology).


Administrative change l.jpg

Administrative Change

HSS

Office of Health, Safety and Security

Move administration of IRB from ORAU to HQ

  • Concern by external organizations that no DOE site/lab involved in worker studies/the FWP should administer an IRB responsible for reviewing/approving such studies.

  • Joint funding by SC and HSS

  • Institutional Official will be DOE HQ management

  • Members will be selected by DOE HQ

  • Biggest challenge will be finding an administrator not affiliated with any DOE site to fill Becky’s shoes

  • ORAU will still be responsible for meeting and travel logistics, and Becky will serve as SME.
