The IRB office will be moving on Friday August 11, 2017. The new address will be:
3800 Spruce Street
First Floor Room 151
Philadelphia PA 19104
Our telephone numbers will stay the same.
For study teams who still submit paper please carefully consider the methods you use to get your paperwork to the IRB office. During the week of the move date (August 7-11) please contact the IRB office to coordinate receipt of your submission to avoid any issues or delays in approval.
The United States Postal Service (USPS) will begin forwarding our mail to the new office around the time of the move and for 30 days following the move date. USPS will be the best mechanism for submitting before, during and after the move.
For study teams that typically use; Intramural mail, UPS, FEDEX, other courier service or who hand deliver their own submissions, we are asking that you either switch to USPS or contact the IRB to coordinate receipt of your submission. We are working with the business services center to appropriately coordinate the revision to our intramural mailing code. We will announce the new mailing code once it is finalized.
Due to inbox capacity limitations versus the number of paper submissions we usually receive and the typical combined size of the files necessary for IRB submission, we are not able to direct you to a general email address for submission of non-HSERA applications. Please do not email your paper submission to the IRB unless specifically instructed to do so by an IRB coordinator who is prepared to receive it. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience presented by this transition.
