IRB Submission Process

 Most submissions to the KUMC IRB are made and processed through the electronic IRB system in eCompliance. The following links refer to all activities and possible documents created by the PI and study team prior to logging into the system.

Initial Study Submission Step-by-Step

Recruitment Resources

Informed Consent

Modifications to Your Study

Continuing Review

Reporting New Information / Events


  • For New Proposals: There are no submission deadlines. Items for review by the convened board are placed on the next available agenda when the submission is complete. The meeting agenda is generally finalized a week in advance. At times, certain holidays or other circumstances may alter when the next available meeting will be convened.
  • For Continuing Review: Please ensure that your request for continuation is received at least 21 days before the project expires.  If studies are not submitted before that date, there may not be sufficient time to review before your approval lapses.

The KUMC FWA covers three IRBs, two which operate at the KUMC main campus in Kansas City, and one which operates at the School of Medicine-Wichita as well as other IRBs designated by the KUMC HRPP as reviewing IRBs.
