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:
- Protocol is exempt from further IRB oversight
- Protocol will receive expedited review
- 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.
