Human Subjects Protocol Renewal

All continuing, nonexempt research must be re-reviewed and re-approved at intervals appropriate to the degree of risk, but at least once per year. Approximately one month before an approved project's expiration date, the IRB Office will prompt the responsible project investigator (RPI) to begin the renewal process.

So that the appropriate level of review can be completed before the project's approval expires, the IRB Renewal Form must be submitted by the deadline indicated in the IRB Office notification.

Human subjects research may not continue beyond a project's approval expiration date.
