All research involving human subjects should be submitted to the Institutional Review Board (IRB) for review. The IRB meets monthly during fall and spring semesters. Proposals requiring a full board review will be reviewed at the next scheduled meeting if submitted by the end of the prior month. A response to submitted proposals will be sent within a week of the IRB meeting which reviewed the proposal.
A reminder: The IRB does not meet as a full board during June and July. Please plan accordingly and submit any proposals that may require full board review by the end of March, so the proposal may be reviewed at the April IRB meeting and, if revisions are needed, can be resubmitted for review in May.
Proposals should be submitted by emailing the completed Request For Review form and associated documents to firstname.lastname@example.org. Additional information and the Request For Review form can be found on the IRB website.
