Step 8 – Final Step

The final step is to send your application to the appropriate IRB representative.

  • Pam Cutter (Anthropology/Sociology, Humanities, Languages, STEM)
  • Alyssa Maldonado-Estrada (Economics/Business, Interdisciplinary)
  • Brittany Liu (IRB Chair; Psychology, Political Science, Physical Education)

If you are unsure which representative to send your application to, please email the chair of IRB, Brittany Liu, at

NOTE: Reading through these applications is a important and time-consuming task. Please give the IRB committee member in charge of granting approval in your area at least two weeks. Further, if there are parts missing in your application, or if you have sent multiple documents instead of the one combined application then you will be asked to redo certain parts and follow the IRB procedure. This will also add time to the process.
