What can I do to streamline the approval process?

The Institutional Review Board (IRB) and Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) office will work to facilitate a smooth review process for both new and existing Investigators.   Please submit the eBridge PRO SmartForm (PRO) and other applications which apply to your research at your earliest convenience.  In addition, Research Resources Starting Up Research offers additional guidance.

  • Consultation with the HRPP office or HRPP Director
    • If an Investigator is new to MCW and bringing research data or specimens to MCW, a consultation is recommended to identify the best pathways to transfer the research to MCW.  For current Investigators, the HRPP is always available to discuss new projects or changes to currently approved projects to identify and work through any possible IRB concerns.
  • Initiate the PRO SmartForm (PRO) in eBridge
  • Complete the applicable form(s) for Safety Committee Review and approval:
    • Subcommittees of the Joint Safety Committee are: Institutional Biosafety Committee; HazChem Safety Committee; Radiation Safety Committee; MRI Safety Committee.
    • Safety subcommittee applications are available on the MCW intranet site. If you have access to InfoScope, search for keywords “safety committee forms.”
  • Contact your department administrator to begin the process of transferring any possible grant funds to allow you to pay for any possible costs incurred.
  • Contact and work with Froedtert Hospital’s Office of Research Innovation Care and Compliance (OCRICC) if you will be enrolling subjects at Froedtert or using Froedtert Hosptial resources (including records).
  • Complete the required CITI Human Subjects Training or affiliate to MCW to access your previous CITI training and complete the additional required MCW modules.
