Faculty and staff research protocols may be submitted to the IRB via the Cayuse system from the beginning of Spring semester 2020, and the IRB encourages faculty to do so. Faculty and staff research protocols must be submitted via the Cayuse system beginning March 1, 2020.
Student research protocols may continue to be submitted via email or hard copy until the beginning of Summer session 2020, after which, all protocols must be submitted via the Cayuse system.
The Cayuse Institutional Review Board (Cayuse IRB) is an online human subject research application management system used to electronically prepare, submit, and route research studies for IRB approval. All information is stored in the cloud and can be accessed securely from any location, making it simple for researchers/investigators to upload, edit, and submit human subjects research studies. Users receive electronic notifications whenever an action is required on their part, allowing the study to proceed smoothly through each step of the review process from study creation to final approval.
Faculty and Staff User Access: CSUEB faculty and staff have access to the Cayuse system automatically through their single sign-on ID (NetID.) If you are unable to log into the system, please email Anne Wing at firstname.lastname@example.org to request access, and include your NetID, your CSUEB email address, and your department. Once your information is entered into the system, it takes 24 to 48 hours for the Cayuse IRB system to update and allow you access.
Student User Access: CSUEB students do not have access to the Cayuse system by default. To request access, please ask your faculty advisor to email Anne Wing at email@example.com. Your advisor should include your NetID, your CSUEB (Horizon) email address, and your department in the message. Once your information is entered into the system, it takes 24 to 48 hours for the Cayuse IRB system to update and allow you access.
Faculty Advisors: If you are teaching a course where you will be requesting access for all your students, please contact Anne Wing for instructions on completing and submitting a template with all your student data at once.
