IRB Appointlet Consultations Update
Due to staffing shortages, the Appointlet IRB Pre-Submission Consultation program has been paused.
For any questions that cannot be answered with the below resources, researchers can email email@example.com for additional assistance. Please note, the IRB staff will have limited availability for meetings in order to focus on reviewing a backlog of submissions from recently separated staff, so the research community is kindly being asked to carefully review the information provided below before requesting additional IRB assistance when beginning a new study submission. The IRB staff look forward to resuming the Appointlet IRB Pre-Submission Consultation program as soon as they are able to do so, as this is a valuable service to the VCU research community.
Note: IRB staff will still be available to advise on questions about ongoing research projects already submitted and assigned to a reviewer/IRB Administrator. The above applies only to the Appointlet IRB Pre-Submission Consultation options previously offered.
