Remember “Monday at noon before my Tuesday”
IRB members, we know you have that Tuesday afternoon meeting time noted on your calendars – in ink.
Another important meeting-related time to keep in mind, however, is “noon Monday.” That’s the deadline we ask you to meet in reviewing your assignments and having your comments and contingencies entered into CLARA. Having them done relatively early allows the IRB chair to complete his reviews, and also lets the office staff look over your comments to see if there’s anything we can handle before the meeting.
There was something I absolutely, positively needed to get done by noon Monday — what was it again?
Oh, that’s right — my IRB reviews!
