The OHRPP new IRB submission system, named BruinIRB, will be live starting Monday April 5, 2021.

BruinIRB will be rolled out in phases and will eventually replace webIRB entirely. In this phase, phase 1, BruinIRB will be accepting the following submission types:

If UCLA is relying on another IRB for a HUD or Expanded Access submission, submit these within webIRB until further notice. Contact for these submissions.

BruinIRB Protocol Templates

BruinIRB requires all submissions to upload a protocol document rather than completing questions within the application. To assist in the new protocol requirement, OHRPP has created protocol templates that can be used for each submission. The protocol templates contain all the required information required for IRB review.

Phase 1 protocol templates

Note: These protocol templates are also available within BruinIRB Library.
