Submissions for EXEMPT & EXPEDITED REVIEWS may occur any time. Protocols meeting exempt criteria are typically processed within 2-3 business days. The IRB returns feedback for expedited protocols within approx. two weeks; however, time to approval may take longer depending on required revisions. (Turnaround may be slightly longer over the summer months due to limited reviewer availability.)
FULL BOARD SUBMISSIONS are due two weeks before the full board meetings; but we encourage PIs to submit as soon as possible to allow for pre-meeting consultation to streamline the approval process. We also prefer that PIs (if able) attend a portion of the meeting to offer any necessary clarification if the board has questions. Note: research involving prisoner research or research with minors may require additional review time.
