If a study is considered to be research involving human subjects, it will be reviewed at one of three levels:
Exempt Review Process Regulations Guidance
Expedited Review Process Regulations
Full Board Review Process Meeting Dates Roster
Review times are based on several factors:
- The quality and completeness of the submission.
- The number of studies in the queue at the time of the submission. Studies are reviewed in the order in which they are received.
- The length of time it takes researchers to respond to pending items and inquiries. Submissions are administratively withdrawn from review if a response from the PI is not received within 60 days.
- The availability of IRB members to review submissions.
