First Time Submission Assistance

Welcome to the IRB. Our job is to help make sure that your research project is designed in such a way that it minimizes the risk to human participants (for research involving animal subjects, see the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee; IACUC).

If this is your first submission to the UWGB IRB, there are several things you will need to do before submitting your proposal.

1. Read The Belmont Report (can be found on the IRB homepage)
2. Obtain an IRB Training Certificate (see “Obtaining an IRB Training Certificate”)
3. Familiarize yourself with the IRB Policy and Procedures Manual (can be found on the IRB homepage)
4. Explore each of the links on the homepage under “Submission Assistance and Answers to Frequently Asked Questions”

If you need any assistance, please feel free to contact the IRB Chair.
