IRB Protocol Review Times
To keep you up to date on how long it is taking the IRB to review various types of submissions, we update the table and graph below on a monthly basis. The table displays the number of days (median and range) from date of submission until date of final determination (approval or rejection) for submissions that reached a final determination in May, 2013. Some types of review require that the submission be sent back and forth between the IRB and the investigator. For your interest, we show how much time submissions spend in the IRB office versus in the investigator’s office. We are not satisfied with these current review times. We are working hard to accelerate the pace and shorten these times. Check back next month to see our progress.
