Continuation requests, referred to as "renewals" in Cayuse IRB, are required annually for Expedited and Full Review protocols. If a continuation request is not approved prior to the expiration date shown on your approval letter, the protocol will expire, and no further work or data analysis can be performed until the IRB has a new protocol is approved. If the protocol is in Cayuse IRB, expiration alerts will be sent to the PI 60 days and 30 days prior to the expiration. These alerts are a courtesy to the PI; it is the PI's responsibility to submit the continuation request form and any required documents in Cayuse IRB according to the timeline shown below.
For Expedited Review, the continuation form must be submitted 3 weeks before the expiration date.
For Full Review, the continuation form must be submitted 30 days before the expiration date. The PI must also be sure to meet the submission deadline for the meeting at which the protocol will be reviewed.
