Submission Cut-Off for December 2021

Please be advised of the following cut-off dates for all 2021 submissions to all UPMREB Review
Panels, in view of the forthcoming Christmas break:
▪ 13 December 2021 for the last day of screening applications
▪ 14 December 2021 for the last day of receiving submissions
These deadlines refer to electronic submissions and note that only received submissions will be
processed for inclusion in the January 2022 full board meetings and for expedited review action due
in the first week of January 2022. The deadlines are being implemented to provide for ample time to
process the submissions before the holiday break.
The requirement for hard copy submissions remains suspended. All reviews are facilitated online, and
panel actions are communicated to investigators through electronic mail. In view of the urgent nature
of specific COVID-19 related protocols, UPMREB is implementing a flexible system to facilitate
panel actions as quickly as possible.
Note that protocols received until 14 December 2021, which are for Full Board Review will be
decked as follows:
▪ 06 January 2022 (Panel 1)
▪ 18 January 2022 (Panel 2)
▪ 24 January 2022 (Panel 3), for PGH Residents and Fellows
▪ 13 January 2022 (Panel 4), for PGH Residents and Fellows
