INSTITUTIONAL REVIEW BOARD
Institutional Review Board New Submission Process -
As of January 6, 2014, all faculty and student investigators conducting research on human subjects at Duquesne University will be required to submit their IRB applications via Mentor IRB. Mentor IRB is an IRB web-based application that will enable the IRB to better serve the Duquesne research community. A transition period is necessary to upload new documents and complete the review process of those applications submitted during this semester.

Mentor IRB will be launched on Monday January 6, 2014. Mentor IRB User Guidelines, Revised IRB Policies and Procedures, and the new IRB forms are now available on this site for your review and use; however, you may NOT submit a new application via Mentor until January 6, 2014.
