Human Subjects Research Protocol Submission

The University of Memphis manages human subject research protocol review through Cayuse IRB. The software allows the  Institutional Review Board  to review the submission process while simplifying and making transparent the protocol review process. Using your University of Memphis log in credentials, you will have 24/7 access to submission, editing and review of your IRB protocols, as well as, paperless electronic approvals – no waiting to receive approval docs - and management of IRB protocols from initial submission to close.


Investigators are  required to use Cayuse Institutional Review Board (IRB) for all protocol submissions. If you are a current student, faculty or staff member and have tried logging in to Cayuse and do not have access or you have tried opening Cayuse Institutional Review Board (IRB) and are unable to access it, or have any questions, please email cayusesupport@memphis.edu or call (901) 678-2705.

Access Cayuse Institutional Review Board (IRB) , enter your UofM login and password, and select Cayuse IRB Human Studies Compliance.
