Advarra offers expert IRB review services to pave a more direct pathway to new neurological disease interventions.

Advarra helps researchers and institutions push forward into new frontiers with a Central Neurology Review (CNR) service. The CNR team has extensive experience reviewing neurology research, with IRB members who possess a robust understanding of the latest techniques, methodologies, and discoveries, including neurology experts from prestigious research institutions.

CNR Advantages

  • Deep regulatory knowledge and consultative approach
  • IRB membership with clinical neurology expertise from esteemed institutions
  • Decades of central review leadership and unmatched regulatory track record
  • Streamlined review and flexible, transparent process
  • Unparalleled service and support


The Advarra CNR panel includes distinguished scientists and industry leaders who have first-hand experience conducting neurology research and are up to date on current clinical practices and research innovations.


CNR collaborates with institutions to navigate the latest developments in neurology research and human subject protections. CNR acts as an extension of internal research programs, providing expertise and support to institutions.


By combining the robust expertise of a local IRB, the efficient capabilities of a central IRB, and the leading minds in neurology research, Advarra delivers independent, objective, and authoritative review services.


CNR upholds a transparent review process, offering real-time access to documents and data with the added ability to discuss issues with a dedicated support specialist. Always know a study’s review status, anytime, anywhere.

IBC Collaboration

Studies involving CAR-T cells, viral vectors, or genetically modified materials may require review by an institutional biosafety committee (IBC). CNR can easily collaborate with our IBC to provide concurrent IRB/IBC reviews, eliminating inconsistent assessments and accelerating study startup.
