The eIRB system is a web-based application for the routing and tracking of IRB submissions.
- All new, initial applications must be submitted electronically via eIRB
- Please note that investigators are REQUIRED to submit a protocol with their eIRB submissions.
- For amendments or continuing reviews of previously IRB-approved paper studies, continue submitting in paper until further notice.
Single IRB Requirement
As of January 21, 2020, ALL federally-funded collaborative human subject research projects will require the use of a Single IRB, not just NIH-funded projects.
If you will be submitting a federally-funded grant proposal that will include collaborative Human Subjects Research, you will need to obtain the IRB’s determination regarding who will serve as the IRB of record at least six weeks in advance of submission.
For additional information regarding the process of determining who will be the IRB of record and how to properly include IRB fees in your budget, please contact the following:

Conversion of ArtSci IRB Paper Studies Into The eIRB System will Be Required Starting January 22, 2020
Arts and Sciences IRB Paper-based Full Board or Expedited studies due for continuing review on or after January 22, 2020 will be required to transition to eIRB (online submission system) rather than renewing in their current paper format. Please be advised the IRB requires that studies are submitted in eIRB approximately 90 days prior to the expiration date due to the time needed for the Committee review.
