IRB Tips and New Information
Yellow is the new Red – As you may have noticed, the IRBNet displays an expiration date next to your list of projects when in ‘Project Status View.’ You may have also noticed that depending on how close to the expiration date your study is, the date will change color. Dates turn yellow 30 days prior to expiration and red once they are expired. Essentially, if you see a yellow date next to your project and have not already submitted your continuing review package, you’re already past the due date and it’s time to get cracking. If you see a red date, the team will have to stop all study related activities. As a reminder, continuing review packages are due four weeks prior to expiration for minimal risk studies, and greater than minimal risk (full board) studies are due the first working day of the month prior to expiration (example: if the study expires on 10/3, the CR would be due on the first business day of September).
