Einstein IRB Online Application System

The Einstein IRB is rolling-out the new IRB software, iRIS. Using iRIS, researchers are able to electronically submit their protocols and related materials to the IRB. Before submission, the system checks the transactions for errors and omissions. The attachment feature, electronic routing and electronic signatures enable this process to be paperless. Use of iRIS for new Full Board submissions is optional (but is required effective with the February 2014 IRB meetings). Use of iRIS is required for new Exempt and Expedited submissions is required.

Training Schedule

We are offering two types of sessions. All sessions are optional.  

  • Training sessions provide a foundation for using iRIS and includes an overview of basic IRB requirements. Registration is preferred as space is limited.  
  • Drop-in sessions provide researchers an opportunity to work on their applications with IRB staff available to assist with any questions that arise are available upon request. Contact Sathya at or 718.430.2776 to schedule one.
