  • Fewer than 5% of protocols require Full Board Review. Contact the Division of Research Integrity and Compliance (x7482, or ) to determine if your study might require Full Board Review.
  • Protocols for Full Board Review must be submitted 2 weeks in advance of meetings (see schedule above). Deadlines will be strictly observed. Other protocols may be submitted at any time.
  • IRB staff conduct a preliminary review and invariably request some protocol modifications. Modifications must be completed by the Thursday that precedes the Board meeting.
  • To facilitate reviews, investigators are invited to Board meetings to directly address concerns.
  • To understand the IRB review process, see the IRB Flow Charts.
