Submission Process & Meeting Dates

Process Overview

The Committee requires 15 business, non-holiday days to review and respond to Exempt or Expedited protocols. As such, these protocols need to be submitted at least three weeks prior to the planned start of the research in order to leave time for comments and revisions, if necessary. Please note the IRB process may take longer based upon the extent of the Committee’s feedback.

Full Committee reviews require submission at least 15 business, non-holiday days prior to the scheduled IRB meeting date. All listed researchers are required to attend the IRB meeting for full reviews. Researchers who need to follow a modified timeline should contact the IRB Committee Chair to discuss this.

For full committee protocols, we will follow the submission and review schedule as outlined here:
