This page introduces SPH faculty investigators to the process of submitting an IRB application for HRPP/IRB review via IRB Manager, CUNY’s IRB-submission software. The guidance is organized into four parts:
- Part 1: Focuses on when HRPP/IRB review via IRB Manager is needed (not all projects constitute Human Subjects Research as defined by the federal regulations).
- Part 2: Addresses pre-IRB application submission steps and planning.
- Part 3: Covers submitting an IRB application in IRB Manager and the HRPP/IRB review cycle.
- Part 4: Provides post-approval tips for maintaining an IRB-compliant protocol.
The SPH HRPP Office is available to assist you throughout this process. Please contact us with human subjects research-related questions and concerns.
