Where do I submit my protocol?

The Human Research Protection Office (HRPO) has converted to the online human subject approval system called e-Protocol.

In order to access e-Protocol, you will need to contact the HRPO and provide the following information: Name, Department, Title (e.g., graduate student, postdoc, associate professor), e-mail and NETID.  Please note: the CITI human subjects on-line training must be complete before a login can be provided for e-Protocol.

Once your submission is complete it goes to the IRB chair who reviews your protocol and decides the appropriate level of review from three options:

  1. Protocol is exempt from further IRB oversight
  2. Protocol will receive expedited review
  3. Protocol requires review by the full IRB

Depending on the level of review required he/she will assign reviewer(s) from among the IRB members.
