IRB Renewal Application Form

To request continuing IRB approval

UPDATED 02/22/2021:

The IRB committee and staff continue to function remotely during regular business hours. You can reach us via email at irbhp@cornell.edu.

In May 2020, the Cornell Research and Operations Reactivation Committee published a guide for the safe restart of the university's research, including the requirement that researchers must submit a reactivation plan to their college/unit for approval before returning to campus. This requirement still stands. In-person human participant research may be allowed on campus, and these guidelines for reactivating in-person human participant research provide a means for each college/unit to decide if a research reactivation plan can be approved. Any changes to IRB protocols must also be reviewed by the IRB.

The IRB also published additional guidance for investigators on conducting in-person research during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please review the guidance, and also visit the IRB COVID-19 FAQs page periodically for updates. Thank you for your patience and cooperation, and please contact the IRB if you have any questions.

To file a renewal application for an established IRB protocol, please complete the below form and submit to irbhp@cornell.edu
