Submission Requirements

Once you have determined which type of review is required for your project (Section 5.2), prepare your submission to the IRB accordingly, as described below. Throughout the review process and subsequent administration of the project, research investigators are responsible for complying with all IRB decisions, conditions and requirements. If revisions in the proposed protocol or informed consent document are required by the IRB, these revisions must be submitted to and approved by the IRB before the research project can begin.
