Announcements from the IRB Office

 Go to "Getting Started..." at left for information on the Cayuse IRB process and to obtain access through authentication.

Cayuse periodically makes improvements to the IRB software.  A maintenance day is scheduled for the second Saturday of each month.  Watch here for announcements.

Please email us at to arrange a training session for Cayuse IRB or ethical issues associated with protocol writing.

18 July '18: The next IRB committee meeting will be held on September  6, 2018. All protocols who  require a full board review  (utilizing a vulnerable population) and are submitted during summer, will be reviewed at the September meeting. Please plan accordingly. 

22 May '18: A reminder:  The protocol approval period depends upon the type of review (full, expedited, or exempt). Typically, most protocols are reviewed by the expedited method which can take 3-6 weeks, provided that the protocol packet is complete. Complete means that the protocol has all of its components and it has passed the administrative review* by the IRB office before it goes to a member of the IRB for ethical review.

*Administrative review can take 1-2 weeks.
