New Protocol



If you are submitting a clinical trial for approval with any form of clinical intervention, you need to contact the Central Baptist Clinical Research Center at 859-260-6296.  Your study will be reviewed for feasibility and a department representative will assist you through the IRB review process. 

If you are submitting a protocol for approval that does not involve clinical interventions, you may contact the IRB office for assistance at 859-260-6074.

There are many steps that need to be taken prior to your submission of the protocol: 

  • An IRB staff member will discuss with you what documents will be required with your submission.
  • You will need to obtain a user id and password for iMedRIS from IRB staff
  • A list of all study personnel should be sent to the IRB
  • All study personnel must complete human subjects protection training

All submissions to the IRB are to be done through the IRB submission web based software located at iMedRIS.

The IRB office will determine the type of review appropriate for your study:  Exempt, Expedited or Full Board review.  The office will conduct a pre-review of the study application and accompanying materials.  You will be contacted if any items are missing or additional information is needed.
