For Faculty and/or Student Projects That Exceed One Year in Duration
IRB approvals are valid for one year minus one day. If the research is to continue past the one year marking point (including analysis of data), it must undergo a yearly review. For instructions on how to submit a project for Continuing Review, please contact the IRB prior to expiration of the IRB approval. If the faculty and/or student do not apply for a continuation, review on a particular research project, IRB approval for the research expires and no further research can be conducted (including data analysis).
