Due to staffing shortages in ORI, review and approval turnaround times for IRB submissions may be delayed over the next several weeks. If you have a particularly time-sensitive study, please be sure to send an email to email@example.com or ORI_Director@pdx.edu and you will be contacted to discuss the timeline and details of your project. Thank you for your patience with our team as we continue to accept and process IRB submissions in the coming weeks.
The Institutional Review Board (IRB), [aka HSRRC], regulates PSU research activities involving human subjects and provides independent determination on the methods, risks, benefits, and rights involved in human subjects research.
The PSU IRB is scheduled to meet the third Friday of each month. Protocols must be submitted two weeks in advance of the meeting (the first Friday of the month) to be included on the full board agenda for full review protocols.
Per PSU policy, please plan for a minimum of 4-6 weeks between submission of an IRB application and approval from the IRB.
