ULM IBC Review Process
The ULM IBC will receive applications for protocol approval throughout the academic year. Decisions of the committee will be communicated to the principal investigator within one week of the committee decision. If an application is incomplete or of the committee has questions. the applicant will have one week to respond from the date of notice. If a response is not received within this time period, the initial application is administratively closed and the applicant must submit the entire application.
The applicant is notified in writing, via campus mail, when a project is approved by the ULM IBC. If there are any special conditions under which approval is given, those conditions will accompany the approval. No project can be initiated until this written approval is received by the applicant.
When an application is denied, the reasons for the denial will be provided to the applicant. An applicant may modify their project and re-submit a new application for consideration by the ULM IBC.
The ULM IBC will grant protocol approval for the duration of the project as determined by the applicant. If no time period is indicated, then a default approval period of one year will be granted. Approval to conduct the project is to be terminated at that time unless the committee receives a request for continuance.
Modification of an approved project is prohibited without prior committee approval of these modifications. Request for continuance of protocol modification must be received by the IBC before initiation of the modified protocol.
Applications and other information can be obtained from OSPR. Applications can be sent by email to the Chair of the IBC, Dr. Gissendanner (firstname.lastname@example.org). A copy of the application should also be forwarded to OSPR (email@example.com).
The ULM IBC will hold meetings in April and October every year. Meeting times will be posted on the OSPR website. ULM IBC meetings are open to the public and applicants are invited to attend. Minutes of ULM IBC will also be posted on the OSPR web site.
