At the IRB office, we are working diligently to move the researcher through the IRB process in an efficient manner. The process usually begins with a pre-review or a desk-review, and that is when the IRB office coordinators check to ensure that all needed documents are attached to the submission, that it’s been signed by all appropriate parties, and that the application document is filled out correctly and completely. Submissions that pass this desk-review are then forwarded to one of the IRB board members for a review. This is the process that most IRB submissions follow.
