Request a Determination

As described in the preceding page, the IRB is responsible for reviewing all human subjects research activities.  If you are relatively sure that your upcoming project meets the definition of "human subjects research," you may go ahead and submit the study in the eIRB system.  If, however, you are unsure whether your project needs IRB review, you may click the button below to expeditiously submit basic information about your project to the IRB.  After receiving the information, the IRB will email a determination about whether your project should be submitted in eIRB for further review.

This determination request tool is solely for use by Emory faculty, staff, and students.
