The Research Submission Portal process will ensure that your human subject research at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus is ready for IRB submission. This portal is designed for researchers and study teams to submit their human subject research for review by the University of Colorado Hospital, Children's Hospital Colorado, Clinical and Translational Research Center (CTRC), and University of Colorado.
Benefits for Principal Investigator and Study Team
- Online submission process
- Simultaneous reviews by CTRC, hospital(s), and scientific review committee
- Scientific review including biostatistics, if needed*
- Consolidated feedback for Principal Investigator from all reviewers
- Facilitates faster IRB review because of pre-IRB review
*Most Investigator Initiated Full Board studies, which have not recieved previous scientific review, are required to be reviewed before submission to COMIRB. Deadlines for submission can be found here. The portal administrators will determine if scientific review is necessary after submission using this decision tool.
