IRB - Institutional Review Board IRB - Institutional Review Board


Welcome to the website and program of the CGU Institutional Review Board. Our focus is to facilitate faculty investigators and help train student investigators to understand and carry out the fundamental purpose of all IRBs, which is to assure the Investigator's Respectful Behavior toward every person who participate in research as a "human subject."





Effective Tuesday Sept 4th all protocols should be submitted through Mentor. Please use link below or the link in your QuickLaunch2 box in your portal to go to Mentor.

We're here to help...

...with all of your ethical research needs. During the current transition to Axiom Mentor IRB, one of those needs might be help with the new system. With that in mind, we have created a getting started guide. If you need additional help, feel free to shoot us an email, stop by the office, give us a call, or attend one of our introduct to Mentor workshops. Workshops will take place in ACB 126 and are scheduled for August 23rd at 10:30am, September 4th at noon, and (faculty only) September 5th at noon.

The CGU IRB is going paperless!

We are transitioning to the use of an online IRB protocol submission and management system, Axiom-Mentor. Mentor will streamline the submission process, provide submission receipts, allow investigators to view their protocols at any time and track the review progress, and much more. We have also configured the system to provide guidance during the submission process.

We will continue accepting protocols using the applications on our Forms page and submitted via email (to in MS Word format until September 4th. After September 4th, the CGU IRB will only accept research protocols submitted in Mentor.

Access our human subjects research ethics training program:  



CITI Progam linked to Axiom-Mentor and available in the MY CGU portal!

To better facilitate the requirement that all CGU investigators complete training in human subjects protections, user accounts in Axiom-Mentor and the CITI Program are now linked. The CITI Program will update Mentor daily with your current training credentials, which means CGU investigators will no longer need to send their CITI credentials to CGU's IRB. Investigators can check on their credentials, including expiration and renewal dates, by following the "Human Subjects Certification" link in Mentor's menu.

In addition, CITI can now be accessed via a link in your MY CGU portal in the Quick Launch box, using the same icon as the one above.
