Cooperating with researchers at another institution?

Researchers may now send questions about collaborating with non-UNC researchers, and inquire about the status of IRB reliance agreements, by email. Please include the IRB Number of your study in the subject line.

Departmental approval change

Department approvers can once again compile a list of submissions awaiting departmental approval, at the Dashboard Routing Inbox.

Automatic deletion of aging draft submissions

Effective November 1, 2014, submissions that remain in "draft" status (i.e., never submitted to the IRB) for more than six months will be automatically deleted on a monthly schedule.  To prevent deletion, simply access the submission and click the Save button on any screen.  Deletion of a "draft" post-approval submission (i.e., Modification, Renewal, or Closure) will not remove any previously approved submissions for that protocol.

Processing time delays

We continue to experience delays in processing time.  Recent changes in our computer system (IRBIS) have impacted the time it takes to review and approve submissions.  We appreciate your patience while we get through this transition.  Click here for guidance on how to monitor the status of your submission.
