IRB Has a New Form for Current Research Projects to Fulfill the Continuing Review Requirement

Posted on July 5, 2017 | Filed under General News

The Institutional Review Board (IRB) at Allegheny College wants to remind researchers that previously approved ongoing projects with human participants are subject to continuing review. According to Federal Regulations, all such current projects at the “expedited” or “full” review level must undergo continuing review no less than once per year. “Exempt” projects only need continuing review when there is a change to the protocol and/or change to the personnel (e.g., new students working on the project). For continuing review, researchers must submit a protocol summary, a status report on the progress of the research, and current/new consent form. They should do this through the new Continuing Review online form located here.

Members of the Allegheny community can find more about the IRB and research with human participants here.
