IRB and Practical Sites
Liza Rivnay is available to assist you with your practical research considerations, including setting up an IRB, REDCap, etc. Please email her to schedule a zoom or in person meeting if you require help with IRB, REDCap and other Northwestern research-related resources.
- Request VPN access for Mac or Windows
This is how you will be able to access the eIRB website and REDCap when you are not on NU wifi.
- Ask your mentor to request REDCap access if you will need it for your project.
You will need to fill out the REDCap user agreement
REDCap is a HIPAA secure website that acts as a data repository. It can be used to collect data for chart reviews, or as a survey to send to patients. There are a lot of great REDCap tutorials.
- Register for an eIRB account
This is how you will access your study protocol and submit it to the IRB for approval/edits.
Make sure to check out these IRB templates to help you write your proposal.
- Get the Galter Proxy button
When you are knee deep in PubMed and need access to a journal article, pressing this button and logging in will give you NW access without losing your spot.
