About the eIRB

The aim of the eIRB is to streamline the IRB application process and to provide fast and efficient communication and tracking information for investigators, research personnel and IRB administrators.

The eIRB allows you to submit new study applications, study modifications, continuing reviews and reportable new information electronically. You can also submit an IRB Inquiry form as part of a new application if you are uncertain about whether IRB review is necessary for a new project. Results of IRB reviews and any communication surrounding the IRB review process are also handled by this system.

For technical assistance and questions regarding use of the eIRB system contact eIRB Customer Support at eirb@kpchr.org or 503-528-3945.
