The St. Catherine University IRB is responsible for conducting initial review and monitoring of all research that involves human subjects at this institution. Investigators cannot begin research with human subjects until a complete application has been submitted to the IRB, reviewed and approved. Remember the protection of human subjects is a shared responsibility among researchers, advisors, and the University and the IRB has developed a process to assist in achieving the best possible research outcome.
Mentor IRB - Online IRB Application Tracking System
Mentor IRB is the St. Kate's online application management system. New IRB applications are submitted via the Mentor IRB system for IRB review as well as approved applications are monitored via Mentor IRB (amendments, completions, etc). Mentor IRB is accessible using your St. Kate's username and password. The Institution ID is stkate. External researchers require a St. Catherine University faculty or staff sponsor before a Mentor IRB account will be set up.
