** Please note that some Full Board submissions may be required to be re-reviewed at a subsequent meeting. Please plan accordingly.
2024 Meeting Dates*
*Meeting dates are subject to change as needed to establish a quorum for holidays and other times when a quorum cannot be established.
The deadline for full board protocol submission is 15 calendar days (approximately three weeks) prior to the meeting date. Protocols received after this date will not be reviewed by the IRB committee until the following month.
If you determine or are notified by the IRB Administrator, that your proposed protocol is "Full Board," you must submit your application to the IRB Administrator by the submission deadline. Any protocols submitted after that month's deadline will be reviewed at the next month's meeting.
**Allowances to the submission deadlines may be made where feasible to accommodate changes in meeting dates.
