FAQ: Can I continue to work on my IRB project if my approval has expired?

No – as of the expiration date, you cannot continue to work on the IRB project, including collection and analysis of private identifiable data.

The IRB office sends renewal reminders as a courtesy to the Responsible Principal Investigator and Secondary Investigator and Study Coordinator (if applicable) before closing the IRB project upon expiration. If you have received a Notice of Closure letter and your project is not complete, contact the IRB office to discuss your situation.
