- Initial Reviews - $2,500
- Continuation Reviews - $1200
- Modification Reviews - $500

Fees are charged for review of human research that is financially sponsored by industry or for-profit entities. IRB fees are charged whether or not the study is approved by an IRB, subjects are enrolled, the study terminates before milestones are met, or expenditures exceed revenue. Research that is permitted to receive external (non-Mount Sinai) IRB review will be charged a one time administrative fee.
IRB fees should be included as line items in the budget of the formal contract as upfront and non-refundable items.
The contract should contain the following template language regarding IRB Usage fees:
