Meeting Dates & Submission Deadlines for Full Board Review

Does this apply to my proposal?

For submissions that are classified as minimal risk (exempt and expedited), full board review is NOT required.

  • Only more than minimal risk studies, research with prisoner subjects, and other protocols not eligible for Exempt or Expedited review require Full Board review.
  • If an expedited reviewer determines that the IRB application cannot be approved or that the study is more than minimal risk, the submission will be referred to the next full board meeting for consideration.

For a protocol to be considered for presentation at that month's convened meeting:

  1. The complete submission must be in submitted in IRBNet no later than 5:00 PM and a minimum of 10 working days prior to the meeting date (see schedule below).
  2. A complete submission includes all of the mandatory submissions forms/documents and valid CITI training completion for the entire research team.

* All meetings will take place from 3:00pm to 5:00pm. 

Please keep in mind that the University of Denver observes several holidays and breaks during the course of the academic school year. During these closures, all university buildings close; therefore, the DU IRB does not meet and the DU HRPP/IRB staff will not be available. Otherwise, the IRB meetings are the 2nd week of each month based on the availability of the IRB members.

**During the summer break, the DU IRB will not meet due to the availability of the IRB full board members.
