Please submit initial or renewal applications or addenda, to be considered at a convened meeting of the full IRB, two (2) weeks PRIOR to the date listed below and with the necessary signatures and supporting documentation. Applications and addenda should be delivered to: Clayton Faubion, Institutional Review Board; Department of Rehabilitation, Hazel Hall, room 1109; University of Maryland Eastern Shore; Princess Anne, MD 21853.
Please note, however, that when more applications are received by the UMES IRB than can be reviewed at a single meeting, consideration of some may have to be postponed until a later meeting. Generally, we schedule consideration of applications in the order that they were received. However, we also give priority to revisions of previously submitted applications and renewal requests. Persons submitting initial applications, particularly when they are associated with sponsored projects, should take this into account when deciding when to submit an application.
