Application for IRB Approval
Research involving the use of human subjects must be approved by the IRB prior to implementation. In addition to protocols requiring full board approval, certain categories of research may qualify for expedited or exempt review. Expedited or exempt review only requires review and approval by the IRB Chair.
All incomplete or inadequate IRB application packets will be returned to the principal investigator without review. As a result, the applications which are returned will experience an additional delay of one month over and above the current schedule.
The IRB application consists of: the face page, the project abstract and description, data collection, funding information, risks to participants, informed consent, data use, and investigator assurances. This application is designed to increase the speed and accuracy of protocol reviewed. Please complete all sections of the application in order to reduce delays due to incomplete protocols.
For questions regarding the completion of the application, please contact the IRB Chair at email@example.com.
