Case Study Provided A third year clinical investigator has developed a proposal to assess de-identified existing data from electronic medical records. As exploratory analyses, she determines her hypothesis is supported with a simple assessment. With high enthusiasm she developed an abstract for a meeting she did not originally intend to submit. Her abstract is accepted for oral presentation and published in a major journal. A colleague attends the conference and is angry as he was unable to submit his work due to IRB approval time limits. He turns her over to IRB.
