IRB Protocol Submission
Plan in Advance
Please plan ahead to allow a sufficient amount of time for submission, review, and approval of your study. The current review timeline is posted in a message in the Cayuse system and will depend on the volume of submissions received by the IRB office. The turnaround time for IRB protocol approvals can be impacted by many variables and will vary throughout the year. Protocols are reviewed on a rolling basis, in the order that they are received. Protocols of greater complexity or risk will take more time to review. Please reach out to the office if you have questions regarding the posted review timeline. If the current review timeline will place undue burden on your research, please contact our team at email@example.com immediately to discuss the situation.
Protocols that are incomplete or lack details will be returned to the Principal Investigator (PI), further delaying the review and approval processes. Please review all of the IRB Resources for Researchers to assess the readiness of your study documents for review.
To request permission to proceed with in-person human subjects research during the COVID-19 University reopening, please follow this guidance.
