Individuals who had an account in the old eIRB system received an email from Andrea Seykora on February 12 with their IRBNet login information and instructions.

If you did not receive this email, you likely already have an account with IRBNet through your work with other regions or institutions.  Log in and your KPNW studies should now appear under "My Projects."  If you forgot your login information, click the "Forgot your Password?" link on the IRBNet home page or contact KFRI via WebEx.

All submissions must now be made in IRBNet.  The old eIRB system is still available for access by CHR staff should you need to look up historical details of your study.

Next IRB meeting: March 20, 2019 

Submission deadline for March IRB Meeting: March 1, 2019

NEW!  Express Exemptions

Under the Revised Common Rule, effective January 21, 2019, more studies qualify for exemption.  Exemption means that after an initial determination by the IRB, no further review is required unless there is a significant change in the project.  We are piloting a new initiative to make it quicker and easier to get an exemption.  You can even do this before you submit your proposal!

Express Exemption Instructions

Express Exemption Request Form

The new process is optional.  You may still choose to complete a full study submission, and the IRB will still issue an exemption determination if the study fits an applicable exempt category.

Review our Revised Common Rule page for information about new exemption categories and more.
