Submission Review Tool for PIs and Study Staff
Please note that the Research Compliance Office/IRB Staff has developed a submission review tool. This tool was created to assist Principal Investigators and Study Staff with assessing and addressing study related information prior to sending submissions to the Texas Health Resources IRB. The primary goal of this tool is to assist with accelerating the time it takes for a Principal Investigator to receive IRB final approval of a submission.
