The IRB represents a wide range of scientific disciplines from the academic community. We evaluate applications on a monthly basis.

  • Applications for review must be received by the Friday before the meeting. If the application is received after that date, it cannot be considered until a later meeting.
  • Incomplete applications will be returned for corrections and will not be considered until the application is complete.
  • Human-subjects training is required for all applications. We currently accept CITI SBE. Your certification cannot be more than three-years old. If the training expires during your research period, you must renew the training and provide documentation. Training needs to align with the research being proposed. Other types of training will be evaluated on a case by case basis.
