Online IRB Project Management Program
On August 25, 2010, the Loyola University IRB launched a new online proposal submission and tracking system called "CAP" (short for Compliance Approval Package). This new program is the portal for managing all your projects that require submission to the IRB.

If you are new to the IRB process, then you will need to "Log In" to the system. Please use your Loyola University ID and password, if you do not have this please contact ITS. Once you have logged in to the system you will be directed to submit a request for access to the CAP system. You will then be sent an email approving or denying your request to access the CAP system, this process may take a few days. If you need to expedite the request please contact Jennifer Rios at jrios1@luc.edu or by phone at 773-508-2128.

If you have any questions or problems with the system please contact Andrew Ellis, Asst. Dir. of Research Compliance, at aellis5@luc.edu or by telephone at 773-508-2689.
