Our IRB Processes have changed! Effective August 14th, the IRB 2.0 Handbook is live! One of the major revisions? The format of the handbook. Rather than a single document that you have to flip through, we have a series of smaller documents (usually around 1 page) that seek to provide specific, targeted answers to questions about the document topic. The IRB has worked hard to make the documents easy to read and understand; please don’t hesitate to provide feedback on these revisions, including ways we can improve them in the future. Please take the time to review the new documents and consider attending a IRB Processes Training session (see calendar).
We are working on creating internal hyperlinks in the documents so that researchers can navigate seamlessly from one document to another, gathering the specific information they need to prepare a successful IRB application. Anywhere you see highlighting in the documents below is the future home of a hyperlink.
Although the IRB will be returning on August 14th, our first meeting is not scheduled until September 14th. We will work to review all documents submitted as soon as possible.
