Research & Data Analysis Division

  • We only accept application and review requests on our latest forms.
  • The HRRS and WSIRB will only review research applications for research that is within its jurisdiction (DSHS, DOH, L&I, HCA, DEL, and several county health departments).








The WSIRB is moving to a Web-based electronic protocol management system, CyberIRB®.  With CyberIRB® research staff will be able to submit and track their WSIRB submissions entirely online. Interface and review forms will employ business logic to reduce time completing forms.
