IRBNet Researcher Training Sessions

Planning on doing research this year? Does it involve human subjects? Then you need to make sure you get approval from Brenau’s Institutional Review Board.

Brenau is transitioning to the use of IRBNet for research protocol submissions and we will be having training sessions in September and October to walk you through the new submission process. Protocol application submissions will be accepted either through IRBNet or through the old process of submitting a complete PDF application to irb@brenau.edu for September and October IRB reviews, hoever, beginning in November all submissions must be made through IRBNet.

Kelly Peters, Brenau’s IRBNet Administrator, will help walk you through the following:

  • How to determine if your study requires IRB approval and what type of review to apply for
  • Making sure you submit a complete protocol application
  • CITI Certification Requirements
  • Submitting your protocol application on IRBNet
  • Submitting revisions and receiving approval to begin your research

The first sessions will be offered next Thursday, Sept. 8, at 3 p.m. and Friday, Sept. 9, at 9:30 a.m. in Redwine 106 on the Gainesville historic campus.

If you are planning on submitting a protocol for the September IRB review, bring your application with you to the session and Kelly will walk you through submitting it on IRBNet before you leave.

Please email Kelly at kpeters1@brenau.edu and let her know if you will be attending one of the sessions. RSVPs are not required to attend, but we would like to get a head count of how many will be there to make sure we have enough handouts.
