Getting Started with the IRB

  • You can find helpful information on this site. For all the IRB policies, you can review the IRB Manual linked at the bottom of this page.
  • Complete all the required human subjects training as instructed on the Human Subjects Required Education and Training page (also linked below).
  • Complete the IRB application in the electronic submission program, iRIS. Assistance with the application process can be found under Assistance with iRIS. In addition, use the detailed Application Guide for specific information about each question on the application.
  • The iRIS program can be difficult to navigate. Using the step-by-step guides in the HELP menu within iRIS is strongly recommended. Short tutorials have also been provided there for supplemental assistance.
