To respect our reviewers' personal time during winter break, the IRB will not intake or process expedited or full-board submissions until January 4. The IRB office will handle inquiries and process exempt/NHSR applications through Dec. 18, then will be closed until Jan. 4. Due to a likely backlog and continued understaffing, expect significant delays in response/processing during the winter term and plan accordingly. Thank you for your understanding and patience. May you have safe and happy holidays!
Exempt and expedited reviews occur on a rolling basis throughout the year. See Review Categories & Timeline for more information. For further guidance or consultation,contact the IRB at 206-296-2585 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The IRB does not review full-board submissions during the summer. During the academic year, full-board protocol submissions are due no later than 5 p.m. Friday two weeks before the scheduled meeting.
We invite you (and if applicable, your Faculty Adviser) to attend a portion of the full-board meeting to answer questions and provide clarifications. This practice facilitates the board's deliberation and revision requirement process.
Due to reduced staffing and delayed processes, submit your full board protocol as soon as possible.
