OU Norman Campus Institutional Review Board (IRB)
NOTICE: iRIS will be down for upgrades from Saturday, September 27th beginning at 12:00am until October 7th, 2014.
We are anticipating the upgrade process to take less than a week but have scheduled iRIS to be offline for the entire time in case necessary.
For this reason, the IRB Meeting and Deadline schedule for October has been revised to allow for the upgrade.
Please keep this in mind when deciding on when to submit submissions to the IRB, especially Continuing Review submissions for studies that expire in September.
Please refer to the updated IRB Meeting Schedule to ensure your study is reviewed before its expiration.
Please contact the IRB office at 405-325-8110, if you have any questions/concerns regarding the timeframe.
