Electronic Submissions and Training
As of March, 2020, all IRB applications are to be submitted through the Cayuse application. For more information, visit the Institutional Review Board (IRB) web page.

Starting in January, 2021, IBC and IACUC applications are to be submitted through Cayuse. At this time, the IBC and IACUC Cayuse module is separate from the IRB module. For more information, visit the Cayuse Research Suite page.

What to Do When You Need Multiple Committee Approvals
If your research spans multiple regulatory committees, you will need to submit separate applications to each committee. Contact the committee administrators or Michael Long to coordinate.
