We can help refer your request to the appropriate SHORA team:
- seeking funding
- developing your idea or protocol
- student projects (bachelor or master’s level projects)
Submitting Your Research/Project
All new projects must be submitted to the SHORA intake process using the new Intake Form contained in IRBManager. A SHORA analyst will be assigned to your project to guide you through the research process and will contact you with next steps.
Submit to Intake
With the protocol developed, or the grant funding opportunity identified, the first step will be to submit to the SHORA intake process using the electronic system, IRBManager.
- Quick reference for signing a document in IRB Manager

- How to get to the xform you need
You can log in to IRBManager with your username and password or copy and paste this link: https://spectrumhealth.my.irbmanager.com
Contracting, budgeting, and regulatory review (IRB) per our Research Process (PDF) will all follow once Intake has been received. Please note that the IRB application will now be completed during the intake process when the assigned SHORA analyst states that it’s time for you to submit through IRBmanager.
