Institutional Review Board Submission Process Update
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. Therefore, the IRB will not accept any new IRB applications at firstname.lastname@example.org using the old submission process after Wednesday December 11, 2013.
Mentor IRB will be launched on Monday January 6, 2014. Mentor IRB User Guidelines, Revised IRB Policies and Procedures, and the new IRB forms will be available on this site prior to the Spring 2014 semester.
