Human Subjects Research Portal

What is the Human Subjects Research (HSR) Portal?

The HSR Protocol Submission Portal was created to ensure that your human subject research at The University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus is ready for IRB submission. The portal is designed for researchers and study teams to submit their human subject research for review by Children's Hospital Colorado, University of Colorado Hospital, the Clinical and Translational Research Center (CTRC), and The University of Colorado Denver.

For research studies that have not received previous scientific review and/or studies that are requesting the use of CTRC resources, a scientific review of the protocol will be performed by SARC prior to HSR Portal clearance.

For research being operationalized at Children's Colorado, what types of studies need to be submitted to the HSR Portal?

If your study will be submitted to COMIRB/WIRB as a Full Board Review and/or if you are requesting the use of CTRC resources, you will need to submit to the HSR Portal.

Please note: HSR Portal Clearance is required prior to COMIRB submission for full board review studies.
