Northwestern University has established multiple IRB panels to review research:

  • IRB Panels A, B, C, & D review biomedical new studies, revisions and safety/other events.
  • IRB Panel Q reviews biomedical studies that are up for continuing review as well as time sensitive submissions.
  • IRB Panel E reviews social behavioral research. 

Once a submission is ready for review, it will be assigned to the next available meeting.  Meetings occur monthly and IRB agendas are set two-weeks prior to meeting date.
