Submission Deadlines & Full Committee Meeting Dates


The IACUC meets once per month to review protocol applications, major amendments, and exemptions. A minimum of three weeks is required to review protocols after submission. Protocols should be submitted two to three months prior to the anticipated research initiation date to allow enough time for the review and approval process.

The table below is a timeline for review of most protocols and major amendments submitted to the IACUC. Please note that while the timeline is usually followed, holidays, system constraints and other unexpected events may impact review and response deadlines

Note: Late submissions do not allow adequate time for distribution of protocols to the committee reviewers.
