Calendar and Proposal Review Time Frame

Meeting days for the Full Board and proposal review time frame.

The TTU Institutional Review Board convenes the full board the last Tuesday of each month at 3 p.m. Full Board proposals submitted 3 weeks prior to the scheduled meeting are assigned an IRB primary reviewer. The researchers and primary reviewer work together to prepare the proposal for the meeting agenda. Research proposals submitted after the three-week deadline will be reviewed the following month.

Exempt and Expedited category reviews, will be then assigned to an IRB reviewer. Review times vary over the course of the year depending on reviewer availability. It is the goal of the TTU IRB to operate efficiently throughout the review process to support the research efforts of the university.
