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."



The CGU IRB is going paperless!
A ​beta release ​of our new IRB protocol system is now available!

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.

At present, we are still accepting protocols using the applications on our Forms page, but please note that these should now be submitted via email (to in MS Word format. If you would prefer to try the beta release of Axiom-Mentor at CGU, you may do so by clicking on the icon below. 

As is the nature of beta releases, we are still refining our system and working out some kinks. We appreciate your patience with what may be a less than perfectly smooth experience. Once we have completed the beta testing phase, the same icon will be available in the Quick Launch box of your MY CGU portal. 


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. You can also access it here, using the icon below. This is the same icon that appears in the Quick Launch box in your portal.
