USM HRPP Submission Requirements:
Only complete protocol submissions will be accepted for review. The ORIO will notify the principal investigator listed (via email) when a submission to ORIO is received in its complete on line form.
A submission is considered complete ONLY when it satisfies all four of these requirements:
1. Each submission must utilize the appropriate form on the USM ORIO web site.
2. Each submission must answer all questions fully and in sufficient detail to allow reviewers to make the determinations required.
Applicants please note that most applications require more than one review because the IRB often requests additional information and/or changes. Therefore, applicants should leave ample time for additional review before the anticipated research start date.
