Winter Break -Protocols submitted during this recess period will NOT be processed until the University reopens on January 2, 2018.

-After return on January 2, 2018, protocols will be processed based on the date on which they were submitted in the online system.

Tip of the Month:  How to determine the status of your IBC online protocol

Registered IBC online users can sign in to immediately determine the status of their protocols:

  • A protocol in "Pre-Submission" indicates that the study has NOT yet been submitted to the IBC by the investigator
  • A protocol in "Office Review" can either be in review by a member of the office staff ("Coordinator Review") or evaluation by committee members ("Member Review")
  • After sign in, look for the Bright Blue Rectangle (upper left corner) to detail the sub-state and the dark blue bubble in the protocol diagram (on the protocol header) to indicate the general status in the progression towards final approval.  For more details, see TIMELINE
