Once your protocol is submitted through the KC IRB system, it is assigned to a professional staff member in the Human Subjects Office, referred to as a "screener," who will conduct a "pre-review."
The pre-review considers the information you submitted including all documents and attachments. If the screener has questions or concerns that require revisions, the screener will contact you.
In the KC IRB system, the Return to PI action will notify you (and any co-PI and aggregators listed on the protocol) via email that an action is required on your part. Please note:
- Your protocol will be processed once you have addressed the screener's comments and resubmitted.
- You must resubmit your revised protocol within two weeks, or it will be administratively withdrawn.
- Follow the instructions for Responding to a Pre-Review to ensure your study is processed in a timely manner.
