IRB Administration

Submission of Research for Review

All study-related submissions (including request to amend approved protocols, protocol violations, and serious adverse events) must be submitted in PRISM. The exception to this rule is:

  • Exception requests should be submitted via email to      
  • If you have any questions about what constitutes a protocol deviation or violation that should be reported, please contact the IRB Research Monitor, Cynthia Desmond, at

All other Correspondence

We welcome your questions, and we ask that your use our email address for all other communication. Please include the PI-IRB protocol number in the subject line of all correspondence. 

Please note: IRB main office reads and "triages" IRBMail daily, have ready access to protocol files, and assign each query for response. Please DO NOT email IRB Analysts or the Chair directly without including IRBMail on protocol matters as this risks loss or delay in responding to your request. It is also not necessary to cc any of us individually on queries addressed to IRBMail. Urgent patient care related queries will be forwarded immediately to the Chairman from IRBMail.
