All Saint Louis University researchers should now submit new IRB protocol applications in the eIRB system, which can be found at https://eirb.slu.edu.
The IRB will only accept paper submissions of new protocols until August 1, 2011.
Some types of IRB submissions still must be done using paper forms. These include: new HUD, Emergency Use, Compassionate Use and Facilitated review submissions and actions on existing (paper) IRB protocols, such as amendments, continuing review and safety or closure reports.
Existing IRB protocols will be incorporated into the eIRB system later this year.
For details and to access other "how-to" documents for eIRB, please visit the IRB website: http://www.slu.edu/x30683.xml.
Please direct any questions or concerns about the implementation of eIRB to 314-977-7744 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
