The holidays are fast approaching and we would like to remind you of the importance of submitting renewals a little earlier than usual to ensure uninterrupted IRB approval. As in previous years, the office will be closed from Tuesday, December 24, 2013 through Wednesday, January 1, 2014 for the University holiday break.
For those studies that qualify for expedited review with an expiration date before January 10, 2014, the final date for submission will be December 13, 2013. This will enable our office to make sure your study is reviewed prior to the closure of the office.
For those studies that require full board review, the list of upcoming meeting dates are noted below. Keep in mind that agendas fill up quickly especially at this time of the year.
As a reminder, the first meetings in January will be Committee A on January 7, 2014 and Committee D on January 9, 2014. The agenda for those meetings will be sent to reviewers on December 18, 2013 which is prior to the holiday break.
Committee A: Tuesday, December 3
Committee D: Thursday, December 5
Committee B: Tuesday, December 10
Committee G: Wednesday, December 11
Committee H: Wednesday, December 18
