The full IRB Committee generally does not meet in July & August.

Protocol applications may be submitted throughout the summer. Protocols that do not require Full Committee review continue to be reviewed during the summer (Exempt reviews and Expedited reviews).

Research studies that pose a higher level of risk to participants and which require review by the full IRB committee at a convened meeting may be submitted for pre-review if ample time is allowed (2 weeks minimum before the submission deadline).
