Cayuse IRB

The UNH Research Office is implementing comprehensive grants management and research compliance cloud-based software called Cayuse.  One module (Cayuse IRB) is for managing protocols submitted to the UNH Institutional Review Board (IRB) for research involving human subjects. With Cayuse IRB, researchers will be able to streamline IRB submissions and have online access to their IRB protocol records.  Some benefits of Cayuse IRB for researchers include:

  • Easy to use electronic forms with autofill features
  • Ability to submit and certify protocols from their computer or device
  • Real-time online submission tracking
  • Centralized IRB record management from initial submission through study closure

october 23, 2020 update on cayuse irB implementation  

Due to several issues, implementation of Cayuse IRB has been delayed from November 16, 2020 to the spring 2021 semester (date TBA).  Accordingly, UNH IRB operations will NOT be closed Monday, November 2 through Friday, November 13, 2020.  Updated information about the implementation will be posted here as it becomes available.

Cayuse IRB Training Sessions

The IRB staff will hold training sessions via Zoom in the month leading up to the implementation where they will introduce researchers to the software, walk them through the features and screens, and answer questions.  While researchers may find the training helpful in getting familiar with the new platform, attending a session is not a prerequisite to submitting an IRB protocol in the system.   Researchers will need to pre-register for sessions and the Zoom link will be sent to them the day before the session.  Once set, dates will be posted here.

Please contact the IRB staff (Melissa McGeeSusan Jalbert, or Julie Simpson ) with questions about Cayuse IRB or the overview sessions.
