The Human Subjects Review Council (HSRC) is appointed by the Dean of the School of Graduate Studies and Research and composed of thirteen members representing the diversity and expertise specified in the Federal Regulations [45 CFR 46.107]. Designated alternate members may attend convened meetings and vote when the matched primary member is either absent or agrees to pass the voting privileges to the alternate member.
The HSRC recommends that principal investigators turn in research proposals at least six weeks prior to scheduled convened meetings. Processing time may be longer depending on the HSRC workload at the time of submission. It is strongly recommended that all applications (especially those under deadlines) be submitted as early as possible.
The following dates have been scheduled for fall quarter 2015:
Oct. 7, Nov. 4, Dec. 9. Meetings will be held in Barge Hall 304M at 3:10 P.M. and closed to the public. There are no meetings scheduled during the summer months (July, August and September).
