IRB Submission and Meeting Dates


Submission and Deadline instructions

All IRB submissions should be routed through the online submission system, AURA-IRB. Please access AURA-IRB through the AURA webpage:

Submissions are due by the start of business day on the day following the deadline, unless otherwise noted. Late submissions of new protocols and amendments will be accepted for the next deadline. The IRB cannot guarantee that late submissions of renewals will be reviewed.

Incomplete protocol submissions will not be reviewed until all necessary materials have been received regardless of the date the initial submission was received. Note that this also applies to contract materials for concurrent routing.

Concurrent routing: Submissions should be routed concurrently through the IRB office and OCR. OCR will determine if the appropriate materials have been submitted prior to review by the IRB. If appropriate materials have not been submitted, the submission will not be reviewed by the IRB, regardless of the original submission date.

Clinical Trials Review Committee

Per IRB policy, protocols requiring review by the Clinical Trials Review Committee (CTRC) must be approved by the CTRC or approved with stipulations prior to review by the IRB. Deferred studies or studies which have not yet undergone review by the CTRC will be returned to the PI if submitted to the IRB. For clarification regarding what studies require review by the CTRC, please see the IRB Policies and Procedures Manual. For further information on the CTRC, please contact the UC Comprehensive Cancer Center, or see the submission guidelines, below.
