For General IRB, eIRB Technical Assistance, and Training Questions:

For questions about IRB processing, eIRB technical questions or training questions you should contact the IRB Help Desk. The most efficient way to contact the Help Desk is through email.

Calls and emails that cannot be addressed directly with the Help Desk are routed to an appropriate OHSR staff member.
