How to Submit

How to Submit Electronic IRB Submissions

Wright State University investigators are required to use the Cayuse Human Ethics module to submit applications to the Wright State IRB. All new human subject research studies must be submitted using the Initial Application Form. All forms within the HE module are “smart” forms that add/remove questions based on your responses. Therefore, it is important that you answer every available question to avoid submitting an incomplete form. The initial application form is also utilized by the IRB to make non-human subject and/or non-research determinations, as well as process external reliance registrations, delayed onset determinations, and emergency research reports. 

To facilitate your use of the system, we have posted guidance documents below.
