Submit Materials to the IRB
An eligible principal investigator must be the official researcher of record on all UNLV human subjects protocols. Please review the PI Eligibility Policy to determine who may serve in this role. Students may not serve in the role of PI on a research project; however, they may submit protocols as student investigators working under a faculty member who serves as the PI on the study.
Researchers may submit a study proposal through the IRBNet online submission system. Basic steps for registering a new user account are below. All proposal packages must be signed by the PI listed on the protocol in order to be accepted for review. For additional assistance on submitting a proposal package, contact the Office of Research Integrity – Human Subjects at 702-895-2794 or IRB@unlv.edu.
