Welcome to Allina Health's protocol management system! Allina Health has chosen eProtocol to electronically manage its research review processes. The system enables investigators, IRB members, and research administration staff to submit, process, review, and track protocol submissions online.
If you do not have a user ID and password, please consult the instructions available on the Research Administration site or call 612-262-4920.
Allina Health's Institutional Review Boards (IRBs)
Allina Health’s Institutional Review Boards (IRBs) review and monitor all human subjects research conducted by Allina Health employees or agents. All research projects requiring exempt, expedited, or full IRB review must be submitted through eProtocol.
Please allow at least two weeks after an IRB meeting before contacting the IRB administrative office regarding the status of a submission or an approval letter.
Allina Health's Sponsored Projects Administration (SPA)
Research projects that involve Allina Health staff or facilities must also be submitted to Allina Health's SPA. The eProtocol system allows the information already completed for the IRB to automatically populate an SPA submission.
If you have questions about whether your project requires Allina Health SPA Approval, please contact the SPA Manager at 612-262-4926.
