To apply for HSRB review, complete the following steps:

- Determine the level of risk of the proposed research and whether the research might be exempt from the need for HSRB approval. Please refer to the Hope HSRB Decision Tree.
- Complete and submit your HSRB application using the HSRB Online Application Management System.
The HSRB strives to consider proposals received by the 1st or the 15th of a given month before the next deadline. For example, the Board will make every effort to consider all proposals received between October 1 and October 15 by November 1.
