IRB Analysts

IRB Analysts within the Human Research Protection Program are staff who help investigators prepare a submission for approval. We assign studies to the Analysts based on the level of review and the first initial of the PI's last name. If you have questions specific to a protocol, even if the protocol has not been submitted for review, please directly contact the appropriate IRB Analyst. Questions about IRB policies and processes in general can be directed to irb-orp@psu.edu for University Park and the Commonwealth Campuses or hspo@pennstatehealth.psu.edu for the College of Medicine and Penn State Health campuses.
