Once a protocol has been reviewed and approved, a formal written notice of approval will be sent to the Principal Investigator.

As soon as the project is approved as “Expedited”, a Letter of Approval from the IRB Chair along with a Board Action from the IRB Chair will be sent to the Principal Investigator. This notice may also specify the terms and conditions of the approval, as well as the continuing review period (6 months, 12 months, etc.)
