IRB Review Categories:
There are three levels of IRB evaluation that a research study may undergo, depending on the level of risk to human subjects. These levels are: Full Board (convened) review, Exempt review and Expedited IRB review.
The level of evaluation can only be determined by the IRB, in accordance with Clinical Research guidelines. Even if an investigator believes a study is exempt, no research should begin until the IRB reviews the protocol and makes the final determination. All research studies require full (convened) Board review and approval.
