Meeting Schedule for the IRBs
This information is provided to help researchers understand the timing of reviews. The meetings are not an opportunity to obtain consultation. Consultation can be obtained by contacting the HSD Staff listed for a researcher’s department on the HSD Contact Page.
What is an IRB meeting. These are closed meetings at which the full convened IRB committee reviews and takes actions on IRB applications. Attendance is by invitation only.
IRB meeting agendas. Applications are placed on a meeting agenda only after HSD staff have assessed them, to ensure that they are clear and contain all necessary information. This is called the screening or pre-review process. Regulations require materials to be provided to the IRB members at least 5 workdays in advance of the meeting.
