From:  Michael Eskenazi, IRB Chair 

The deadline to submit Full Board Review protocols for review by the end of the semester is Wednesday April 7th.  The deadline to submit Exempt or Expedited Review protocols for review by the end of the semester is Wednesday April 14th.  Any protocols submitted after these dates will be reviewed in the order of their submission at the beginning of the fall semester. 

If you cannot meet these deadlines but have work that will begin over the summer, please let me know and I will review these Exempt or Expedited Review protocols after the deadline.  However, Full Board Review protocols must be submitted before April 7th for work that will begin over the summer.  

Please be sure to use the updated Protocol Description Form and Consent Form when submitting your IRB application.  These forms can be found at the bottom of the main page of MentorIRB.  You can access MentorIRB through the Resources tab in MyStetson. 

If you have questions about whether you need to submit your research for IRB review, what your level of review should be, or anything else, please contact me at [email protected] or 386-822-7398.  

From: Melissa Gibbs, Professor & Director of the Aquatic & Marine Biology Program

Attention all faculty members who plan to conduct new research projects involving non-human vertebrate animals this summer: 

As is our usual routine, if you plan to work with non-human vertebrate animals this summer for a research project that has not yet been approved by the IACUC, you will need to submit a proposal for our review by Friday April 23rd. The forms and guidelines used for writing proposals can be found on the Provost’s web page: If you have several students who are all working on a similar project with you, you may choose to submit a single proposal and list the names of students who will be participating. You and your students, however, must have completed some form of IACUC training within the past two years, and have submitted health forms (to Campus Health Services) for review.

We offer research training through CITI You will need to register for CITI using your Stetson ID, and then select the basic Working with the IACUC module. There are several other modules that you might want to have your research students complete (e.g. Mice & Rats, Wildlife Research, Working with Amphibians, Working with Fish). 

The next call for proposals and reviews will be in early August, with a deadline toward the end of that month.

You will be notified individually if you need to submit a continuing review form or a project completion form.

From:  Grace Kaletski Maisel, Learning & Information Literacy Librarian, Research & External Scholarships Advisor
