VCU IRB Submission Deadlines and Full Board Meeting Dates

Submission Deadlines

  • Full Board Reviews

    The IRB Panel meets on a weekly basis, and full board research is assigned to the next available IRB meeting. Assignment of new submissions to a meeting is dependent upon the nature of the research, the number of studies already assigned to that panel for review, etc.

    Full Board Meeting Calendar

  • Expedited and Exempt Reviews

    Expedited and Exempt research is reviewed on an ongoing basis by a single IRB reviewer. There are no deadlines for Initial Reviews. Refer to the emailed Continuing Review Notice for required deadlines for Continuing Review submissions for Expedited studies.

Note: Submissions that are incomplete or which have outstanding issues may result in a delay in the review process.

Principal Investigators who have any study in an Expired state due to a lapse in continuing review approval will NOT be permitted to submit a new research study for initial IRB review until the expired study has been addressed by submission of a continuing review or study closure request, as appropriate (WPP X-4).
