Our Services


    Getting Started

    For the conduct of trials in SGH, approval from the local Institutional Review Board (IRB) is required. The SingHealth Centralised Institutional Review Board (CIRB) is SGH's appointed IRB.   


    With effect from 1 July 2014, CIRB and NHG-Domain Specific Review Board (DSRB) agreed that the research ethics review conducted by NHG will be recognized by SingHealth and vice versa. For new research studies involving SingHealth Institutions and NHG Institutions, only one IRB application is required.


    With effect from 15 September 2014, all new CIRB applications have to be submitted via iSHaRe e-CIRB for review and approval. For sponsored studies, the sponsor is responsible for IRB submission; whereas for Investigator-Initiated trials (IIT), the responsibility lies with the Principal Investigator. Charges apply for each submission. CTRC is able to assist and provide guidance with the submission where necessary.
