The IRB attempts to maintain membership that represent the breadth of research conducted at the University of Minnesota. If your study question is outside the given scientific background of the committee, it could be reassigned to a more suitable committee for review. You will be notified of any such event.
The IRB allows principal investigators (PIs) who have submitted biomedical and social applications an opportunity to answer questions at IRB meetings when the PI’s study is under review in order to answer questions in real time about new proposals. The process allows for increased transparency and communication that may help to streamline the IRB communication process.
When a new biomedical or social application is assigned to an IRB agenda, the PI will be notified by email of the meeting date and time and will be invited to be available outside the meeting room should the IRB have questions.
