Congratulations to the UWF IRB for Excellent Performance!
Congratulations are due to the UWF Institutional Review Board (IRB) members for their outstanding performance record from 2012 to 2014. The UWF IRB has sustained a three-year record of averaging a one week or less response time for research applications that have been submitted in their complete form. In addition, the few IRB applications requiring full board review are processed within a 2 to 3 week period with applicants and advisors invited to attend the full board meeting for discussion and information. Overall, an average of 25 IRB reviews were completed each month during the three-year period. Read more about the IRB members and their excellent performance here.
