IPA IRB reviews protocols (Original Applications, Renewals, Amendments, and Exemptions) on a rolling basis. For all minimal risk protocols, please allow a minimum of ten business days for an initial review of materials submitted. If all materials are complete at the time of submission, a decision letter can be processed as early as ten business days. However, IPA IRB often requests clarification on submitted materials and study design. Thus, please allow for additional time (we recommended submitting one month in advance of your scheduled project activities at a minimum).
For non-minimal risk protocols that need full board review, each project should allow for 60 days to process. All materials associated with a non-minimal risk protocol must be received no later than ten business days prior to the IRB meeting date to be included for review in that month's meeting. This applies to original applications, amendments, and renewal for projects with non-minimal risk protocols. If materials are received fewer than ten business days prior to the next IPA IRB meeting, they will be placed for review in the following month. For questions, please email email@example.com.
The deadlines below are only relevant for those protocols which do not meet the criteria for expedited review. Please note these dates are subject to change.
