Coming Together: A Case Study in IRB Integration

Wednesday, January 31
Presentation: 1:00-2:00pm ET
Q&A: 2:00-2:15pm ET

In November 2017, Schulman IRB and Chesapeake IRB announced that they are merging under the new organizational name of Advarra. As we proceed through the integration process, we are committed to providing proactive answers and support to our clients. To that end, we're presenting this webinar to provide an overview of our integration process.

In this webinar, leaders from the legacy Schulman IRB and Chesapeake IRB organizations discuss key considerations involved in integrating operations for two major human subject protection programs.

Drawing from their past experiences with IRB and other organizational integrations, our presenters will describe the steps they take to help ensure as smooth a transition as possible and explore possible solutions to common issues that come up during integration. This webinar will also aid those research professionals who manage mergers in their own companies, departments, or institutions.
