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/DNP 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!
King County remains in Phase 2, therefore in-person interactions are restricted to ensure that research activities do not increase risk of virus transmission. Please review the SU IRB Research Decision Tree re COVID, and contact the IRB at email@example.com or 206-296-2585 to ask about any permitted in-person activities before submitting your protocol. We will clarify restrictions and consult on possible alternatives.
Prior to engaging in a DNP project that may need IRB oversight or consideration, carefully review the IRB/DNP flow chart below to determine what steps are required.
If your project will need further IRB consideration, complete the DNP IRB Application. [Last updated Sept. 2020]
To avoid delays and returned applications:
Always copy your faculty mentor on your submission and all IRB correspondence.
