All IACUC protocol submissions, continuations, modifications, alterations of training, and animal transfer requests must now be submitted through IRBNet. Forms may be downloaded directly from IRBNet.
You need an IACUC-approved protocol when you are conducting research or teaching activities with live vertebrate animals that are:
Only ISU faculty members, faculty associates or staff can act as the Principal Investigator (PI) on a protocol. Only the PI may submit protocols, continuations or modifications in IRBNet.
Electronic submission through IRBNet.org is now mandatory for all IACUC protocols. The following instructions are intended to provide the basics of setting up a user profile and submitting a new protocol in IRBNet.
Once you have logged in to IRBNet.org you may now update your user profile by adding training, additional affiliations and other information.
New Project Submission
You will use "Create New Project" to submit new protocols or to revise protocols that were not previously submitted through IRBNet. Please note that submission in IRBNet are termed "projects" and the numbering system will be different from our current system. Initial submissions will be assigned a number such as 175296-1. The main number will stay with the project throughout its history, but the suffix indicates the version number and will change with each subsequent revision.
The package will then be reviewed through appropriate procedures. PIs and anyone with whom the package has been shared will receive communications via email from IRBNet, including updates on review status, approval letters, and notifications regarding expiration dates.
To revise, continue, or modify your project already in IRBNet, select “Project History” from within the project to create a new package. From the new package, select the “Designer” tab to add or revise documents and submit the new package.
