Full Board Review: Meeting Dates & Submission Deadlines

Does this apply to my proposal?

For submissions that are classified as minimal risk (exempt and expedited), full board review is NOT required. There is no full board review for exempt and expedited submissions.

  • Only more than minimal risk studies, and some other protocols not eligible for Exempt or Expedited review, require Full Board review. This includes some, but not necessarily all, research with prisoner subjects.
  • 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 for full board review.

full board review Projects

For a protocol to be placed on the full board agenda:

  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.

*Does not apply to Expedited and Exempt Determinations
**Convened IRB meetings are on the 2nd Tuesday of each month beginning at 3:00 p.m. Dates and times are subject to change. The convened IRB does not meet during the months of July and August.
***KRH (Katherine Ruffatto Hall) is located at 1999 E. Evans Avenue.

NOTE: IRB meetings are not open to observers. However, the board does occasionally invite researchers into the meeting if their study is being reviewed and board members have questions about it. If you have submitted a study for full board review and wish to be available for possible invitation into the IRB meeting, contact: [email protected].

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.
