Important update concerning possible IRB review delays

Posted on Sep 19, 2013
— filed under:

The Human Participants Research (IRB) team in the Office for Research Protections (ORP) is experiencing an extremely high volume of submissions for review and approval, at a time when two team members are on leaves of absence. You can help ensure the shortest review time by submitting early, and making sure that your human participants research training (IRB training through the CITI Program) is up-to-date. If you need to meet a deadline, please do not hesitate to alert us at ORProtections@psu.edu (please make sure to include your IRB # and the reason for/timing of your deadline). Although review times may be increased under these circumstances, this is a temporary situation, and we are doing our best to provide timely service for our researchers.  Thank you for your patience
