Change in IRB Process- Effective June 1, 2015

Starting June 1, 2015 actions that require responses on your part will be handled by the following process: 
  1. Submissions will no longer be accepted on an old form. Any submissions received on outdated forms will be returned and you will be requested to fill out the new form. Please pull all forms from the Office of Research Integrity website to ensure they are current.
  2. Email notification will be sent to you detailing any actions needed from you regarding your protocol. If you have any questions regarding actions noted, you are encouraged to contact the Office of Research Integrity immediately.
  3. ONE courtesy reminder will be emailed to you requesting the need for actions on your part. If no response is received within (5) business days, your file will be closed and marked as incomplete. If you wish to start the project over, you will need to resubmit for review and approval. 

We know this is a change from how this has been handled in the past.  However, the changes are necessary due to the increased volume of protocol submissions and also in order for us to better track information for reporting purposes. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Office of Research Integrity.
