eIRB is the electronic submission system for the Children’s IRB. If you have any questions regarding your submission or are unable to log in, please contact the IRB.
If you need to submit for a non-human subjects research determination, please enter the project as if you are submitting a new study. Use the title to indicate this by putting “NHSR –“ in front of the title. In the protocol section, please upload a brief description of the project.
Every research submission requires basic information. Please reference the Submission Checklist to see the requirements. Below are common templates used for submissions. For more templates, click here.
When a reliance agreement is required or requested, submit the study in eIRB and indicate that an outside IRB will provide review. The Children's IRB will evaluate the study and confirm there is no conflict of interest before ceding review. For specific questions regarding reliance agreements, please contact the IRB at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Children’s Institutional Review Board (IRB) is a committee that helps protect the rights and welfare of human subjects in research. The board operates in compliance with hospital research policies and with the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS), and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The IRB reports to the Children’s Audit and Compliance Committee of the Board in conjunction with Children’s administration.
The IRB’s primary concerns are to determine that:
All research activities involving human subjects must be reviewed and approved by the IRB, unless the IRB can prospectively determine the research falls into a category of exemption established by federal regulation.
The Children’s IRB meets monthly to review research proposals to be conducted at Children’s or otherwise involving Children's faculty, staff, facilities or property. Children's researchers must submit a complete application packet to the IRB office. Proposals requiring full board review will be scheduled for the earliest available meeting.
