IRBManager is an electronic management system that serves as the “front door” for the submission, tracking, and retention of research protocols and research compliance documents. This includes Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) application forms. Users can fill out and submit forms directly in IRBManager, and all forms, attachments, and documents submitted with a participating study will be accessible via IRBManager. IRBManager is a fully web-based system that is accessible both on- and off-campus.
Log into IRBManager through Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Edge using your CWU credentials. DO NOT use Internet Explorer as it is an outdated browser that is not supported.
Reference the IRBManager User Guide for detailed instructions on logging into IRBManager, navigating through the system, and submitting forms related to a protocol.
Basic instructions on how to access application, amendment, annual review, and final report forms through IRBManager can be found on the Forms page.
The IACUC adopted IRBManager in 2019. Using IRBManager for protocol submission, review, and tracking will significantly simplify the experience for researchers with active protocols, IACUC members, and IACUC staff.
Advantages of the new IRBManager system for the user:
I am trying to add contact information for other PIs, research assistants, and technicians involved in my protocol, but it is not working!
If your collaborators have never logged into IRBManager before, the system may not recognize their information. Ask them to log in and out of the system, and then you should be able to add them to your protocol.
