18 Dec '14: During the 2014/2015 CPP campus quarter break, the research compliance office will also be closed. Unlike past years, no protocols or emails will be processed during this time. We in the office will do our best to catch up the first weeks of January. And we’ll have to do that in the order of items received. The eIRB system will still be available most of the time - some maintenance will be performed by tick@lab. And the CITI site for research ethics training will be available.
26 Nov '14: The eIRB training dates for Winter 2015 have been posted! Please see the flyer above for more details.
04 Nov '14: As we move forward with the eIRB submittal process, we want to remind the CPP research community that the IRB will no longer accept protocols that are uploaded as a Word doc or PDF. Beginning in October, all protocols must be filled out and submitted through the eIRB.
17 Sept '14: A half dozen protocols have gone through the eIRB process. Reviewed and approved, so we know it works. Yes, there have been some glitches and we've managed to work around them. The feedback from users has been very useful in addressing them - thank you! Now, armed with this experience, we are offering assistance and training in moving your e-protocol through so that you can do research with human participants.
07 Aug '14: The E-IRB has launched! We are excited to announce that the new electronic system for submitting protocols called the e-IRB is active as of today! Click on the “Basic Instructions to the e-IRB” tab to begin.
We want to remind all investigators that it is important to review the "Creating a New Protocol" training document and FAQ’s section before entering the e-IRB.
The IRB office staff knows that with the launch of the eIRB users will have questions and we are ready to help. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to submit any questions or to set up an appointment.
