IRB Fees

Fees for Human Subject IRB Review

Researchers who would like the Rutgers IRB to review their study will be charged an IRB review fee in any of the following situations:

  1. PI is unaffiliated with Rutgers (those investigators who are not Rutgers-paid faculty, staff, or residents, students, and fellows)  
  2. When a Rutgers PI requests Rutgers IRB to serve as the IRB of Record (refer to the Rutgers Single IRB fee schedule below) on a funded research study for an external site or institution engaged in human subject research applicable to the NIH Single IRB mandate and/or applicable to the Revised Common Rule (under Cooperative Research).
  3. When a Rutgers PI requests an external site or institution to serve as the IRB of Record for collaborative research on a funded research study. 
  4. When a Rutgers PI requests a review from a commercial IRB such as WCG IRB, Advarra, BRANY and has a project that is industry-sponsored. Please refer to the section below for WCG IRB |Advarra |BRANY IRB fee schedule.  Please note that Rutgers HSPP also charges an administrative fee for the utilization of commercial IRBs. Please plan your budget accordingly.

If these situations are applicable, then a Rutgers IRB Review fee will be invoiced in eIRB to the Rutgers PI.  Please see the fee schedule below.  If you have any questions regarding collaborative research, please contact the Rutgers Reliance Administrator.
