Please note that starting Fall 2013, the NIH human subjects training should be renewed every 3 years (i.e., the certificate should be no more than 3 years old from the starting date of the research project). (approved by the IRB 6/09/2010)

Types of IRB Review

There are two categories of IRB review of proposed studies:

  1. Expedited Review
  2. Full Board Review
  3. Exemptions from IRB Review

Some proposals may be determined to be exempt from review. All proposals, however, must be submitted through the eIRB System.
