CREB MEETING DATES & DEADLINES

Deadlines for submissions to CREB full board review are strictly observed. Please review the following information to ensure your application is submitted properly and on time.

Deadlines for Full Board Review

Submissions must be received by noon of the deadline listed in the table below in order to be reviewed at the corresponding CREB meeting date. Any applications received after the deadline will be deferred to the next meeting date.

Applications are submitted by the Department Head according to the following process:

  1. Once the Principal Investigator hits “Submit” on an application in RISe, the application is forwarded for approval by the appropriate Department Head; and
  2. Once the Department Head signs off, the study is forwarded to CREB for review. The Department Head must sign off by noon of the deadline.

In time-sensitive situations, it is best to advise your Department Head that the study is waiting for their sign-off. If your Department Head is involved in your study, you should alert the designated alternate to sign your application form in place of the Department Head.
