IRB Full Committee Meeting Results

The following are the results from the Institutional Review Board (IRB) Meeting held on 09/26/14 to review protocols for research involving human subjects.

Please refer to the protocol number mailed to you with confirmation of receipt of your application and use the following codes to determine the action taken:

A: Approved As Submitted.

or

A-DN: Approved As Submitted (De Novo Review).

An official IRB approval letter will be mailed out within 10 working days. Actual commencement of the study may have to wait until other (non-IRB) approvals have been obtained. Check with Sponsored Projects staff if a project is extramurally funded or if any of the work will be performed off site.

M: Minor (specific) Changes Required.

Specific revisions and changes are required for approval. An official IRB communication will be sent via e-mail to the Lead Researcher within 10 working days. The specified revisions can be reviewed via an expedited procedure (i.e., by the Chair or another member designated by the Chair) without going back to the full committee.

T: Tabled for Re-Review.

Substantive clarifications or modifications regarding the protocol and/or consent form are required for approval. An official IRB communication will be sent via e-mail to the Lead Researcher within 10 working days. A completely revised protocol/consent package must be reviewed by the IRB. Meeting deadlines apply to full committee protocols.

D: Disapproval.

Disapproval is used in the event the proposed research does not meet the IRB review criteria for approval of the research (e.g., risk to participants far outweighs the benefits of the research). An official IRB communication will be sent via e-mail to the Lead Researcher within 10 working days. The memo includes the rationale for the Committee’s decision to disapprove and gives the LR an opportunity to respond in writing. If the LR chooses to respond, a completely revised protocol/consent package must be reviewed by the IRB. Meeting deadlines apply to full committee protocols.
