I need my protocol approved right away. Can it be "expedited"?

Expedited does not mean "quick". Expedited review refers to a process of review for certain research that falls within categories established by federal regulations. If a protocol meets the specific qualifications for Expedited review (as determined by the IRB), it will not require review by the fully convened IRB. Instead, the proposed research may be reviewed and approved by a single IRB member. Please note that Expedited research still undergoes robust review and a minimum of 30 business days should be anticipated.
