About Us

Policies, forms, regulations?  Yes, we have them all.  However, our goal is to make it as easy as possible to complete the IRB submission process.

We will interpret, navigate, and suggest strategies used by other researchers.   We have prepared guides, models, and templates.

We are available by phone and email. We are also happy to meet with you in person.
