Investigators

As of May 5, 2011, the WakeMed IRB will only accept electronic protocol submissions via IRBNet.  All current IRB submission forms are available at www.irbnet.org

 

  • When initially registering on IRBNet (or sharing your study information with a collaborator) you must identify "WakeMed Health & Hospitals" as your location.

Once you have completed, electronically signed and submitted your study documents the IRB Office will review your submission for accuracy and completeness.  You will be promptly notified via email should the IRB need additional information to process your submission.

For assistance with IRBNet registration or IRBNet training questions, please contact the IRB Office at 919-350-8795 or wakemed_irb_office@wakemed.org.
