Welcome to the CU-Boulder's Institutional Review Board (IRB) website. On this website you will find everything you need to submit a human subjects research study for ethical review.
The Getting Started section is a practical checklist to reference when submitting new research for review, go to the Forms & Templates section to download any of the IRB templates, guidance for drafting submission documents is located under the Guidance Documents section, and the Submit for IRB Review section is where you can find tutorials for using the electronic submission system, eRA. If you need technical support, check the Common Questions section to see if your issue is listed.
This past April, the IRB welcomed a new Panel Coordinator, Misty White. Misty, a Certified IRB Professional, comes to us from, most recently, LSU Health Sciences Center in New Orleans, and her previous IRB experience includes several years at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Here, she will coordinate all biomedical protocols and the convened IRB meetings. Please join us in welcoming Misty to the CU Boulder family!
In an effort to better serve our research community and streamline the review process, the IRB will change its procedures for all protocol submissions that require full board review. Starting June 23, 2016, all submissions requiring full board review will undergo an administrative pre-review before they will be scheduled for review at a convened meeting. The pre-review will ensure that only submissions that are complete and free of errors will go before the board. The change will affect how investigators determine timelines for submitting items to the IRB for review. Click the title above for more information.
Logging into the eRA application is about to get easier! Click through for more. Beginning Saturday, February 6, the process for logging into the InfoEd eRA portal will change.
eRA will be unavailable Saturday, April 11, 2015 from 9:00 PM until Sunday, April 12, 2015 11:00 AM.
