Institutional Review Board Protocol Management

Institutional Review Board (IRB) Protocol Management is a web-based system that allows researchers (both Virginia Tech and non-Virginia Tech) to submit IRB applications online, track the progress of submitted applications, and save IRB protocol-related documents online.

During the online application process, researchers are guided through the required steps, notified of any missing information, and provided helpful links to assist with protocol development. The system also reminds researchers whenever action is required on their protocols.   
Use the system to view and manage your currently approved IRB protocols, and to view your human subject protections training completion status.


Contact the Human Research Protection Program office at with any questions regarding the online application process or with questions regarding protocol design and development.
