Getting Started on Developing a Request for Review
Step 1. Determine your timeline
The review process takes time. Please consult this page to determine how much.
Step 2. Attend an "Introduction to IRB Process at MSU Denver" workshop
Although not required, attendees have reported that this workshop is very helpful. This workshop is offered monthly through the Center for Faculty Development.
Step 3. Download and complete the appropriate forms and templates
Every investigator will need to submit a Request for Review. In addition, depending on the nature of the research, investigators may need one or more addenda. The forms page also has consent templates, assent templates, recruiting script templates, and others.
Step 4. Obtain Necessary Documents from Other Organizations
Conducting research at a school, public or private agency, or somewhere similar? A Letter of Cooperation or authorization to conduct research may be required.
Step 5. Complete the CITI Program training
All members of the research team who will be recruiting participants, collecting data, or analyzing identifiable data are required to complete the CITI Program training. See the CITI Training page for more information.
Step 6. Use the checklist
Investigators should use the 101 Checklist for Request for Review (108 KB)to determine whether their submission has all of the necessary materials.
Step 7. Ask Questions if You Have Them
