Cayuse IRB

Cayuse IRB ( provides visibility into the entire Institutional Review Board review and submission process while it simplifies the protocol creation process. Using your University of Memphis log in credentials, you will have 24/7 access to submission creation, IRB protocols, paperless electronic approvals – no waiting to receive approval docs - and management of IRB protocols from initial submission to close.
