IRB Experiencing Longer Than Normal Turnaround Time
The IRB is experiencing a longer than normal turnaround time due to the recent curtailment and submissions. They are currently being reviewed five to six weeks from the date of submission. The IRB continues to screen and triage submissions for completeness quickly upon their submission. Rush requests and COVID-19 studies are being prioritized, but rush requests are only being accepted for situations where there is a subject safety concern or a funding deadline to be met.
