UPDATED 09/28/2020: IRB Review Times: The IRB continues to work through a backlog of submissions, many of which involve complex changes to study procedures due to COVID-19 restrictions. As a result, review times will be delayed. For updated information, please see here.
COVID-19 Policies: Research activities involving in-person interactions with subjects continue to require study-specific approval from BMCResearchRestart@bmc.org and/or BU Office of Research, as the COVID-19 policies and restrictions enacted by the Institutional Officials have not yet been lifted or modified. The IRB has posted a set of FAQs that provide guidance on the conduct of research during this period of COVID-19 restrictions. You can also contact the IRB at firstname.lastname@example.org.
