Summer Protocol Submissions

Researchers may submit protocols during June and July (6/1/14 – 7/31/14) on a rolling basis. There are no deadlines during these summer months. Protocols that are submitted between June 1st and July 31st will be reviewed on a first come first served basis. Please note that some research activities may require full committee review, especially those that involve greater than minimal risk to participants. Protocols that are greater than minimal risk may not be reviewed until the first SACPHS meeting in August. Deadlines for new submissions and full committee meetings will resume in Fall semester, on August 5, 2014.
