Using the eIRB System

If you would like to submit a new study for IRB approval, a revision request for an already approved study, or a request for continuing review, please complete your request via the online eIRB system. For detailed information and help regarding the IRB processes and the eIRB system, please review the screenshot tutorial.

Before submitting a protocol to the NC State IRB, please thoroughly review the Research in the time of COVID-19 document in the grey Quick Links box on the right. This guidance is updated regularly with changes in IRB submission requirements or procedures highlighted. Additionally, there are campus-wide human subjects research training requirements for all members of the research team, including the faculty advisor for the protocol, that must be met to enable review and approval of a study. Consult the IRB training requirements document in the Quick Links box to understand what the training requirements are for your study and ensure those training certificates are uploaded to your IRB application when you submit it for review by the IRB office. Applications lacking complete human subjects research training for all NC State University members of the research team and all individual investigators will not be reviewed.
