Review Process

The preparation of an IRB application is a collaborative process between the researcher, faculty advisor (if researcher is a student), and the IRB representative for your School or College.

Before submitting an application for review, researchers should consult their IRB representative with any questions. The preparation of an IRB application requires careful planning and dialogue with IRB personnel.

The USD IRB is committed to providing a review process that is efficient and responsive. In order to achieve this goal, we request that researchers work with us collaboratively and follow the application directions carefully.
