Week #14: IRB, thesis

Our IRB still has not been approved.  The status on Kuali (our university’s IRB management system) still reads “In process.”  Typically it takes only about a week to receive a response, so I emailed our IRB officer about our application.  He somehow missed our application submission which is why there was a delay.  Unfortunately we will have to wait another week to find out if our application was approved or denied.

Other news – I have started compiling papers and research for writing the background of my thesis.  I’m a little lost.  I have plenty of notes on papers that I’ve read but I’m having a hard time connecting everything.  I’ve read a couple of Phd level dissertations, which has been great for giving me an example, but their research is beyond the scope of my project.  It’s also a little intimidating!
