Types of Review

If a study is considered to be research involving human subjects, it will be reviewed at one of three levels:


Exempt Review                    Regulations                    Process                    Guidance

Expedited Review                Regulations                    Process

Full Board Review                Guidance


Review times are based on several factors:

  1. The quality and completeness of the submission.

  2. The number of studies in the queue at the time of the submission.  Studies are reviewed in the order in which they are received.
  3. The length of time it takes researchers to respond to pending items and inquiries.  Submissions are administratively withdrawn from review if a response from the PI is not received within 60 days.
  4. The availability of IRB members to review submissions.
