Getting Started With a New or Existing Protocol

Getting Started with a New Protocol

Prior to conducting research, investigators (researchers) must:

1. Select the method of protocol submittal (as described below) and see the PowerPoint instructions on how to create a new protocol.

2. Request authentication (as explained in the PowerPoint instructions).

3. Complete CITI training.

PI encouragement - In case you feel discouraged by the effort and comments while submitting your IRB protocol for review and approval, this is a reflection by someone who can sympathize with you.

There are two ways to create a new protocol:

1. To access and fill out the e-IRB form online through the e-IRB system (preferred submittal method), CLICK HERE.
2. To access the e-IRB system, upload a text document (Word or PDF) instead of entering the data on the e-IRB application, CLICK HERE.
