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.
