How to Submit a Protocol to the CMU IRB
The CMU IRB uses an electronic protocol system calls SPARCS. All protocol submissions - new, modifications, renewals are processed through SPARCS.
If you do not already have access to SPARCS, you may request access via this webform or by contacting the SPARCS help desk at 412-268-3485
Information on using SPARCS is available on the web.
