Protocol Builder is an online program that must be used by investigators who wish to submit a protocol to the IRB-HSR. The program asks a series of questions which the program then uses to build the template for the protocol and consent form that are specific to your project. A Protocol Builder User's Manual is available to provide additional instruction.
If you need additional assistance with the Protocol Builder Program please contact Margaret Ball at 243-0639 or email@example.com.
