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).
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
Protocol Development Assistance
The Center for Health Equity and Quality Research (CHEQR) is an important research resource for the UF Health Jacksonville. One of the primary goals of CHEQR is to provide research design and analysis consultation services to faculty, residents and fellows including help with IRB preparation and submission, development of protocols, grant development, data collection, data analysis and report generation.
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
