webIRB / OHRPP Submissions
webIRB is UCLA's internet-based software application for the submission and review of research projects involving human subjects. All levels of review use the same webIRB application, which is designed to branch in response to information provided about the study procedures. The system requires a webIRB account that uses the single sign-on UCLA Logon ID credentials. webIRB functions as a document repository, providing study personnel with easy access to study documents like approved consent forms.
webIRB training is conducted in a computer classroom. The Introduction to webIRB course combines hands-on training in the system using a “sandbox environment” that gives researchers an opportunity to create a new practice study as well as a presentation that describes common functions of the system. Please access the webIRB training page for the schedule of upcoming classes.
