PLEASE NOTE:  Protocols submitted by the deadlines above that are incomplete or require substantial revisions cannot be placed on the IRB’s meeting agenda. For help on how to improve the quality of your submission, please visit the webpage: "How to submit a research protocol for IRB review" at the following link.

Investigators are encouraged to coordinate with the IRB Office well in advance of these deadlines to ensure that protocol files are complete and ready for review by the full IRB.

Results of full IRB review will be announced by formal memorandum. These are normally forwarded to Principal Investigators within 10 working days after the meeting.  Please incorporate this post-meeting processing period into study execution timelines.

For additional assistance, please call 301-319-4730 (direct Compliance office) or 301-295-3303 (main Research office) or email (irb1@usuh.edu).
