Full Board Review

Deadlines apply to projects needing Full Board review only. New applications and other submissions that are ready for review (meaning all required protocol elements are present) and received by 5:00 p.m. the day of the deadline will go to the next scheduled committee meeting. All other submission types are reviewed in the order in which they are received, with the exception that submissions tied to the release of funding take priority.

Researcher Attendance 

The IRB welcomes PI attendance at IRB meetings when the PI’s study is under review to enable the investigator to answer questions in real time about the protocol.  Attendance can be in person or via telephone.  The process allows for increased transparency and communication and may help streamline the IRB communication and review process.

When a new human research application is assigned to a Full Board IRB agenda, the PI will be notified by email of the meeting date and time and will be invited to be available should the IRB have questions.

General Guidelines

  • The PI will be notified of date of review when the application is assigned to a meeting and start time of the meeting

  • It is not possible to guarantee the precise time during the meeting that an application will be reviewed, though every effort is made to limit the time a PI is asked to wait. A typical meeting lasts approximately two to three hours

  • PIs will be asked to wait outside the IRB meeting room or to be available by telephone to answer any of the Board’s question

  • The PI making himself or herself available is not a requirement or obligation

  • The PI making himself or herself available does not guarantee the Board will invite the PI to come into the IRB meeting room to answer any questions

  • If a PI makes himself or herself available, an IRB staff member will inform the PI when the Board has concluded its review of the protocol (so that the PI is not left to wait any longer)

Attendance Logistics

  • Only the PI may attend (exception: for graduate student protocols, the faculty advisor may attend)

  • PIs are required to RSVP to confirm attendance

  • IRB staff will inform the Board about the PIs who have communicated an intention to wait

  • IRB staff will remind the Board of PI attendance at the time the application is reviewed

  • IRB staff will invite the PI to come into the meeting to answer questions, if applicable

  • If a PI is waiting, but has not been invited to answer questions, IRB staff will inform the PI that review of his or her project has ended
