For new protocols or for modifications requiring submission to the full committee, please note: the deadline is at NOON on the due dates listed.
Submissions will be placed on the agenda per the availability of reviewers from the appropriate specialty. The review of a protocol may need to be delayed to a subsequent meeting if a reviewer from the appropriate specialty is not available or if a large number of protocols are received for one meeting. If this occurs, the investigators will be contacted to determine the urgency needed for a review.
If all protocols considered for a delay in review have the same urgency for review, they will be placed on the agenda according to the submission date. It is therefore best to submit a protocol as soon as it is completed and to not wait until the deadline date. The study team will be notified of the delay prior to the meeting.
