The Institutional Review Board (IRB), also known as the Human Subjects Research Review Committee (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 requiring full review (activities involve more than minimal risk to participants) must be submitted two weeks in advance of the meeting (the first Friday of the month) to be included on the full board agenda. NOTE: Expedited and Exempt research protocols are not subject to the monthly meeting deadline.
Please plan for at least 2 to 6 weeks between submission of an IRB application and review by the IRB.
