Coast IRB closes doors

This article was originally published in The Gray Sheet

Executive Summary

Coast IRB, a widely-used institutional review board based in Colorado Springs, Colo., is shutting down following an undercover sting by the U.S. Government Accountability Office highlighting systemic oversight problems, although the firm previously thought it would submit a corrective action plan (1"The Gray Sheet" April 20, 2009, p. 7). Several high-profile customers reportedly pulled their business once the troubles surfaced, including biotech firm Genentech. In an April 24 letter, Coast explains that it will transition ongoing operations to Columbia, Md.-based Chesapeake IRB
