Protocol Review Committee
 Outcomes and Notification
 

 

 

Review by the Protocol Review Committee will result in one of the following outcomes:

 

· Approval: The protocol is approved for opening to accrual contingent upon obtaining IRB approval.

· Modifications Required: Before approval from Protocol Review Committee, the PI needs to address minor issues.

· Deferred Due to Overlap: The PI will be asked to provide a rationale for approving competing protocols.

· Deferred Due to Scientific Reason: There are sufficient problems with the protocol and substantial revisions and formal reconsideration by Protocol Review Committee are required.

· Disapproval: The protocol is not approved for opening to accrual at U of I.

 

The PI and contact person are notified no later than two days after the meeting date.  The formal letter is emailed in a PDF file.  The average turn around time for a protocol to receive approval is two and a half weeks after the deadline date provided no modifications are required.

 

Meeting Schedule

Here is the Protocol Review Committee Meeting Schedule. Protocol Review Committee meets twice a month.  Protocols received by Protocol Review Committee and reviewed on or before the deadline date are scheduled for review two weeks later.
