Note: Research protocols requiring Full Review must be received by the IRB office no later than one week prior to the scheduled meeting. To be reviewed, the protocol must be complete, containing all of the required elements and signatures.
Principal Investigators are strongly encouraged to attend the meetings at which their protocols are reviewed.
The IRB meets on the third Thursday of each month, from 9:00 a.m.- 11:00 a.m. Central Time. The meeting takes place on the Troy campus, and live WebEx connections are available to board members not located on the Troy Campus.
Researchers who have protocols under full review have the option of attending the meeting and presenting their study to the IRB. This is not required, but does allow the IRB members to ask questions directly of the researcher(s). Researchers not on the Troy campus can call into the meeting as well.
