Human Ethics


The Human Ethics module of ROAMWyo will streamline all aspects of human subjects research: protocol submission, review, and approval, as well as provide a dashboard where researchers can view the status of all of their proposed, approved, and past protocols.





UW will soon begin the transition to ROAMWyo for all IRB protocol submissions, review processes, and approval notifications for research involving human subjects.  This launch is expected to begin Winter 2024.

During the transition period, protocols currently under review may continue in the old paper system. Amendments and continuing reviews may be submitted in ROAMWyo after conversion of “shell” protocols by the researcher or via the old paper system. New protocols must be submitted in ROAMWyo.

The end date for the old paper system will be announced via the Research listserv and here.  After that date all submissions must be done via ROAMWyo.  This is expected to occur by Spring 2024.
