    Current IRB and IACUC turn-around times.

    If your review has a deadline or specific time constraint, please give yourself and the reviewing committee enough lead-time to complete your review before your deadline.

    Approximate time from submission to IRB decision:

    For new protocols, progress reports, and protocol modification requests, depending on the type and complexity of the submission, the current average turn-around time for IRB determination is 30 days.

    Approximate time from submission to IACUC decision:

    For new protocols, progress reports, and protocol modification requests, the processing time is currently between 3-6 weeks depending on the type and complexity of the submission.

    These turn-around times assume that the investigator responds promptly to committee review queries.  For reviews that require full-board review, turn-around could be affected by the timing of full-board meetings.
