Institutional Review Board for Health Sciences Research (IRB-HSR)

Protocol Review Process

Full Board Review

If a protocol does not meet any other type of review approval (see Not Engaged, Exempt and Expedited sections) the protocol will be reviewed by a convened meeting of the Full IRB. 

Submissions requiring full board review must be received by the submission deadline posted on the IRB website for consideration at the next scheduled IRB meeting.

Currently, Biomedical IRB (IRB-HSR) meetings are held the second and fourth Tuesday of the month except for December when only the first meeting is held.  Any biomedical research project involving human subjects, regardless of its source of funding, is reviewed by the Biomedical IRB.
