IRB Meetings

A full committee review is required when:

  • Projects involve minors (except where standardized or education tests only are being administered);
  • More than minimal risk to subjects is involved (CSUF IRB includes exercise studies and/or studies where blood will be drawn from subjects);
  • Subjects are mentally and/or physically challenged;
  • Prisoners as subjects; and/or
  • Research is of a controversial nature.

If your protocol fits the above criteria, or you think it will require full committee review, please make sure that an original application (plus 15 copies) is submitted by the following deadline(s).

Remember: Official determination of full committee review is made AFTER your application has been received and reviewed by the Regulatory Compliance Coordinator.
