    Protocol reviews are prioritized as follows:

    • All progress reports are prioritized based on expiration date to ensure approval does not lapse. 
       
    • Protocols that must be reviewed due to impending funding (e.g. Just-in-Time) will always be prioritized over other submissions in the review queue. Please note in your email submission "Priority Protocol: Funding" when submitting such a protocol to the IRB email inbox.
