Human Subjects Research Protection Protocol - IRB
Submitting a Research Protocol for IRB Review
The LECOM Institutional Review Board meets on the second Wednesday of each month.
Protocols that are determined to be exempt from the requirement for IRB review and approval and
those that qualify for expedited review can be processed between convened meetings.
Investigators wishing to submit a research protocol for Institutional Review Board (IRB) review
and approval should contact the IRB Chair for guidance before fully developing their proposal. The
