Submitting to the NYULMC IRB

New Studies (Initial Submissions)

  1. Determine if your project meets the definition of Human Subjects Research
  2. Determine the type of review your project will require from the IRB (IE: Exempt, Expedited or Full Board)
  3. Use Research Navigator to create your study's profile. 
  4. When you're ready, use Research Navigator to submit your initial review request to the IRB (and all other relevant OSR administrative offices and ancillary review committees)
  5. There are a few MS Word-based IRB forms you need to fill out and attach to your study profile in Research Navigator in special circumstances. These include the IRB addenda for vulnerable populations and requests for a waiver of authorization of informed consent.
  6. If you have questions, consult the IRB's Guidance document appropriate to your project. If you still have questions after consulting the guidance, please contact us to reserve a block of time with one of our Scientific Managers who can assist you with your submission.
