NOTE: The IRB convenes in the summer only on an as-needed basis.

Please send your study in as early as possible for the Deadline.  IRB Office will review the study for completeness and consistency, and work with the PI to address any minor concerns that can be resolved prior to the IRB meeting.

The IRB will conduct the formal review of the study.

The IRB Office review is to reduce the amount of minor changes that are required for the IRB to approve a study. We welcome your feedback on this process!

Please note:

  • Requests for review may be submitted to the IRB (irb@appstate.edu) at any time.
  • The majority of reviews do not require review by the full board. Reviews that do not require a full board review will generally be processed within two to three weeks.
  • Questions? Contact Robin Tyndall (tyndallrs@appstate.edu or 262-2692)
