Welcome to ETHOS (Ethical Oversight Submission System), the University of Minnesota’s web-based platform for IRB submissions.

Significant restrictions regarding the continued conduct of all research with human participants are now in place.  Guidance, including what must be reported to the IRB as a result of these restrictions, is available at Frequently Asked Questions: COVID-19 and Human Research.

Guidance is updated frequently and you are encouraged to visit the FAQ website daily.

All IRB staff are working remotely but remain available to process submissions, answer questions and provide assistance as needed.  Please do not hesitate to contact us at irb@umn.edu.  You may also call the IRB office mainline at 612-626-5654.  This line is receiving messages which are checked frequently throughout the day.
