IRB Submission Consultation and In-Person Training Resources

Get Help - IRB Staff Consultations

The IRB Consultation Service is provided to facilitate the submission of complete applications to the IRB, which will, in turn, reduce IRB review time; increase compliance in the conduct of human subjects research, and facilitate required reporting to the IRB. Questions about preparing an IRB submission, responding to IRB requests, understanding IRB policies, obtaining informed consent, and reporting unanticipated problems are among those that may be answered during consultations.
