Note- Submission deadlines only apply to applications that require Full Board Review and they must be received by the scheduled meeting deadline. The IRB meets on the last Tuesday of each month. Protocols that require full IRB review but are not received by the deadline will be held over for consideration until the next meeting.
Research that requires Full Board Review includes any protocol involving a vulnerable population, or in which the risk to participants is more than minimal. Minimal risk is where, “the probability and magnitude of harm or discomfort are not greater than those ordinarily encountered in daily life or during the performance of routine physical or psychological examinations or tests.” In addition, the Full Board must review any research that does not fit any of the Expedited Review categories of the federal regulations.
Most human subject research does not need the full board’s review. Once a protocol application is received by the IRB office, we will determine if the application can be reviewed under the regulations for Expedited Review and, if so, the review process will begin without waiting for a convened board meeting.
*Note that the IRB Committee will make every effort to review applications submitted before or on the deadline in a timely manner. In some cases, meeting dates may change depending on the ability to establish a quorum. Research may not take place until an IRB approval is received from the IRB.
IRB meetings will be held in University Center 122. Meetings may be cancelled if there are no proposals to be reviewed.
