IRB Staff Changes
February 11th, 2013
Blair Murdock, IRB Coordinator for Panel 1, will be leaving the IRB for an opportunity out of state. His last day will be February 13th. The IRB is grateful for his long-time service and wishes him and his family the best. Sarah Mumford is also moving out of state at the end of the month and will be transitioning to a remote consulting role. We are pleased to announce that Annie Snow, IRB Coordinator for Panel 6, has been selected as a new IRB Administrator and will be taking over Sarah's duties shortly. Please see http://irb.utah.edu/about/contact/ for more information about the IRB staff.

The IRB has reviewed studies where the sponsor section of the application is blank, even when the study has a sponsor.
This policy change proposes one additional non-federal exemption category, and outlines the new Exemption Umbrella Protocol procedures.
