Basic Information / Deadlines

IRB Review 

Only RESEARCH involving HUMAN SUBJECTS must be reviewed by the IRB. If you are not sure if your project meets the definition of research or involves human subjects, click here for more information. In addition, federal guidelines allow studies to be reviewed at different levels (exempt, expedited, or full review) depending on the risks and population of subjects involved. Allow at least two weeks for a response for exempt reviews, three to four weeks for expedited reviews, and two weeks from the meeting date for full board reviews. Please expect a delay in processing and review times during the summer and winter breaks.
