Some research projects require review by a convened branch of the Institutional Review Board in addition to review by the HSRO.
This includes projects that:
- are greater than minimal risk, or
- don’t fit into an Exempt or Expedited category, or
- are deemed to benefit from review by the Board.
The determination is made by the HSRO and will be conveyed to the researcher after an initial review by the HSRO. Please follow the directions for submitting projects found at the Standard Operating Procedures section of the website.
