Full Board Review

A full board review involves the review of proposed research at a convened meeting where a valid quorum of Institutional Review Board (IRB) members is present. This type of review is carried out for studies that involve greater than minimal risk to subjects or do not fit the expedited categories of review. Please see the IRB meeting schedule for more details about the review timeline.

Minimal Risk means the probability and magnitude of harm or discomfort anticipated in the research are not greater in and of themselves than those ordinarily encountered in daily life or during the performance of routine physical or psychological examinations or tests (45 CFR 46.102(i) and 21 CFR 56.102).

This type of research is required to be reviewed by the IRB at least annually. At renewal time you will be required to complete an eIRB Form CR Smart Form to satisfy the regulatory requirements for continuing review of research. Please see the Continuing Review requirements.
