The Cayuse IRB Review Process
Researchers can track the review process of their submissions by looking at the Dashboard at the top of the Submission Details screen.

The green Check check mark indicates the requirements are complete for that review stage. The highlighted gray section shows where the submission is in the review process.

Cayuse IRB Test Site Available for Practice/Familiarization

Hot Topic/Tip of the Month

Addressing the IRB Reviewer's Comments

After the IRB submission has been reviewed and returned for revision(s), you will address each comment throughout the IRB. The revisions need to be addressed in the original text box. Remove any information that no longer applies to the IRB and replace the text with the updated/requested information.

You will be able to locate the requested revisions by clicking on the edit button of the submission. Bubble icons with a number will appear in the sections column. The number inside the bubble icon denotes the amount of comments to address in each section. To read the entire comment, you may need to expand the comment. You can reply to each comment stating the revision has been made, asking for clarification, and/or providing justification for their original plan. After the comment has been addressed, you will need to change the comment to addressed. This will change the bubble icon to a green check mark and allow you to submit and certify the submission. The HRPP office will then route the submission to the reviewer.
