We strive to make it easy to do the right thing. This page contains everything you need to navigate your research project through the IRB and compliance approval processes.
1. Get Ready. Make sure you have completed any required training and FCOI disclosures. If you are not a CHR investigator, be sure to review first the Guidance for Research Collaborators and POLICY: Minimum Participation for Collaborative Research at KPNW.
