Meeting Dates and Submission Deadlines

Every effort will be made to include modification and continuing review submissions on an agenda if they are received before NOON on the submission deadline. However, because of fluctuations in submission volume and other circumstances that may arise, there is no guarantee that these submissions will be added to the upcoming agenda. They will be added to the next available agenda once the submission is deemed to be complete.

Note: Submission deadlines only apply to modification and continuing review submissions that require full committee reviewBrand new studies (initial submissions) that require full committee review are reviewed on a rolling basis, in order of date received, as are submissions that qualify for expedited review.

*Note: The Oakland IRB and the Oakland Research Committee are two separate panels.

The Oakland Research Committee conducts a scientific review of investigator-initiated and industry protocols. The committee does not review NIH funded studies as those protocols have already undergone a thorough peer review process.

The Research Committee Chair makes the final determination as to whether a protocol requires review by this committee.

Investigators with a protocol on the Research Committee agenda are invited to attend the Research Committee meeting where they will have the opportunity to present the study, dialog with the group, and receive feedback.

The Research Committee is composed of researchers who are based in Oakland. Some of the members are also on the IRB. The IRB review process at Oakland benefits from this additional scientific review.

IRB Committee Rosters

There are currently five committees that share the responsibilities of the IRB. The committee members have various areas of expertise and are from all schools and many disciplines. Appointments are typically for two years and renewable by mutual agreement. The Associate Vice Chancellor – Research Infrastructure & Operations (AVC – RIO) gives final approval to an appointment or the decision to rotate a member off the IRB. The Letter to Sponsors About Membership has more information on the IRB membership.  Click here for the Letter to Sponsors.   

Click on the name of the IRB committee to see the membership list. You are free to contact the IRB office staff and the Chairs, but please do not contact the members directly.  Note: Chairs and Vice Chairs have been appointed as alternate voting members for committees other than their own.
