I am conducting human subjects research how do I get IRB approval?

If you intend to conduct a study that involves human subjects (including students, faculty and/or staff) AND you intend to publish the findings you must FIRST obtain Internal Review Board (IRB) approval.  To start a new IRB application please log on to https://ideate.cuny.edu/home/ and log on with your CUNY Portal Credentials.

CITI Program Training Modules

Please note that all researchers must complete CITI Program training modules for the Responsible Conduct of Research and Protection of Human Subjects. All faculty and staff that need guidance with the IRB approval process should contact the BMCC Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) Coordinator, Dr. Helene Bach (hbach@bmcc.cuny.edu).
