Review of Submissions
Most studies at Princeton University pose minimal risk to subjects are reviewed within five business days of submission. The IRB meets once/month to review studies that may pose greater than minimal risk to subjects. The IRB strongly recommends that investigators allow at least four weeks for study approval. This timeframe reflects that most studies require revisions before approval.
Implementation of research without IRB approval represents noncompliance and must be reported to the IRB per Princeton IRB policy #207: PI obligations. Research activities includes recruitment, advertisement, screening, enrollment, consent, interventions, interactions, and collection or analysis of private identifiable information.
