review process key features
Review Process – Key Features
  • OPRS pre-review for completeness; ensures all regulatory requirements addressed
  • With exception of the VA panel, no submission deadlines
  • Improving turn-around times for both initial and continuing reviews
  • Communication between OPRS staff, IRB members and members of the research community is essential; decreased number of deferred applications
