What can be submitted through myIRB?
Protocols that may qualify for exempt, expedited, or retrospective chart review must be submitted via myIRB. Full Board studies will continue to submitted according to the current process (electronic submission to IRBSubmission@jax.ufl.edu - hard copy to IRB office).

Mandatory Training

Starting July 1, 2013 IRB-03 will require mandatory training for all study staff on new protocols.

Who can be a PI?

Working with the three UF IRB's (IRB-01, 02, 03), faculty stakeholders, and research deans in affected colleges, the Office of Research has developed guidelines to better define the qualifications needed to be a Principal Investigator (PI) of a human subjects research project. Read more

Note to File/Research Chart Doc of the Consent Process


It is the investigator’s responsibility to renew his/her research before it expires. In order to assist investigators in this task, IRB-03 sends out first and second Expiration notices at 90 and 45 days prior to your study’s expiration. Once your study expires, we then allow an additional 30 days to submit the renewal/closure paperwork, giving investigators 120 days (4 months) to notify us about the status of the research before we make it non-renewable. To further assist investigators we also now offer the ability to view expiration dates year round via UF IRB Web Tracking

Meeting Schedule & Submission Deadlines

Note: All submissions for IRB review require a single electronic copy of all documents to be emailed and a single (signed) original hardcopy be provided to the IRB office. The IRB cannot log in the submission until the paper copy is received.
