The IRB attempts to review proposals within four weeks of their receipt. Proposals submitted during the summer or during District holidays may be delayed.
Because proposals may need to be revised prior to IRB approval, researchers should allow sufficient time for the IRB to re-review proposals. TCCD’s IRB meets on an as needed basis and meetings can be conducted in person or via telephone conferences.
