Navigating The CIRB For NCI Division of Cancer Prevention (DCP) Consortia Sites And Cancer Prevention Clinical Trial Network (CP-CTNET) Organizations


The CIRB systems are integrated with NCI’s Cancer Therapy Evaluation Program (CTEP) Identity and Access Management (IAM) system for registering Principal Investigator’s (PIs) and research team members; and, the Cancer Trials Support Unit (CTSU) for posting study documents. However, since the NCI Division of Cancer Prevention (DCP) Consortia and CP-CTNet does not use these systems, procedures have been developed to accommodate their needs.
CP-CTNet investigators and research team members will need an IAM account to register in CTEP’s Registration and Credential Repository (RCR). 


  • Always let the CIRB Helpdesk team know you are calling with a Consortia or CP-CTNet question as some of the answers may vary.


Consortia and CP-CTNet members should contact the CIRB Helpdesk to request IRBManager access. Once IRBManager has been accessed, the Worksheet submission process is the same for all users.


All requests for the CIRB approval letters, associated protocols and consent forms should be directed to the CLO for Consortia studies, or to the Lead Academic Organization (LAO) for CP-CTNet studies. DCP Consortia studies and CP-CTNet studies are not posted on the Clinical Trials Support Unit (CTSU) website.
