See the IRB 101 Tutorial page for more information on the training requirement. Your IRB 101 training certificate should be included in your application materials.

Faculty Advisor Review

The Manage Ancillary Review activity is used to obtain and document faculty advisor review. Do not add the faculty advisor to the study team on the Zipline application before the faculty advisor has submitted the faculty advisor review. The system will not allow a member of the study team to submit an ancillary review for the study.

The faculty advisor review may occur concurrently with HSD or IRB review of an application. However, final IRB approval will not be issued until the required faculty advisor review is completed.

The Manage Ancillary Reviews activity:

  • Must be completed by the PI or a PI proxy
  • Automatically sends a notification to the assigned faculty advisor when the ancillary review is added or when the application is submitted to HSD, whichever happens last
