Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI), New Delhi, India and Emory University, Atlanta, USA, are lead partners in the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute/UnitedHealth funded Center of Excellence (COE) in Cardio-metabolic Risk Reduction in South Asia which provides a vehicle for the development of collaborative research projects. With funding from the National Institutes of Health/ Fogarty International Center, a project was commenced to ensure seamless, thorough and efficient review of this collaborative research. The primary activities of the project are: 1) fact-finding activities which included conduct of a case study and review of policies and procedures of the involved ethics review committees (ERCs); 2) training workshops for COE ERC members and staff and 3) piloting of parallel review of continuing reviews and amendments. A process of parallel review of collaborative research has now been initiated and projects are now submitted simultaneously to the Emory institutional review board (IRB) and PHFI institutional ethics committee (IEC).
