New in January 2014
There are certain types of IRB submissions that can now be reviewed with the IRB staff in-person. These “Express Reviews” can significantly reduce delays associated with electronic document processing, thus enabling some or all of a review to take place immediately.
In 2013, Express Review appointments were limited to review of “exempt” studies. The IRB Office has extended Express Reviews to include appointments for the following:
1) Exempt Initial Applications and Project Revisions
2) Pending Notices for all levels of review
3) Minor Changes for all levels of review
4) Research and Engagement Determination Worksheets
Please see "Express Reviews" for more information.
