Form: Human Subjects in Research

IRBNet New User Registration

The University of Delaware uses the IRBNet system to manage its IRB Protocols with research concerning human subjects. If you are not already registered with IRBNet, it is necessary that you do so in order to produce the documentation that will be reviewed by the University of Delaware’s IRB. After review, the IRB office will communicate with the principal investigator and request any clarifications or edits that need to be completed before approval can be issued.

Once a review has been completed, decision letters are uploaded in IRBNet and are always accessible to the investigator(s). Informed consent documents from projects approved via an expedited or full board review will be stamped with the IRB approval and expiration date and also uploaded in IRBNet. Informed consent must be obtained using the stamped version of the approved documents, (i.e., participants signatures need to be collected in a copy of the stamped informed consent.) No IRB stamp is added to informed consent documents associated to projects deemed exempt.
