All human research study applications (except reliance studies involving Wesley and Via Christi) are submitted and stored online in our electronic IRB system (eCompliance). Review our 2015 IRB Meeting Dates and remember, there are no submission deadlines for new proposals.
This list includes preparing and uploading the required Study Protocol. If you are seeking a protocol format, the KUMC Protocol Templates are ready for your use.

Don't forget this step! Your submission cannot be reviewed by the IRB until it has been submitted.
