Creating a New IRB Study

Applications for all research involving human subjects must be submitted electronically through IRBNet. It must be utilized for the submission of new and continuing applications packages for all types of review (i.e., exempt, expedited and full review). New protocols, revisions, continuations, modifications, final reports, etc. will not be accepted on paper or by e-mail. Follow the instructions below. PLEASE DISCARD ALL OLD FORMS AND USE THE NEW FORMS, WHICH ARE AVAILABLE IN THE IRBNet DOCUMENT LIBRARY.

DO NOT REQUEST A DEMO ON THE IRBNet WEB PAGE; this is not a training application and does not pertain to your proposal! If you have any questions, or would like to schedule in-person training, please email or call 785-628-4349.

CITI Training Information - IMPORTANT
Effective January 1, 2014 the FHSU IRB requires completion of CITI training prior to submitting an application to conduct research. Principal Investigators (faculty and students), faculty supervising student research, and all members of the research team MUST complete CITI training BEFORE submitting an application to the IRB.
