IRBNet Workshop with Open Lab

The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs is pleased to announce an upcoming IRBNet workshop. During this workshop, the use of IRBNet will be thoroughly demonstrated. The workshop will be followed by an open lab period, allowing investigators to receive one-on-one assistance with the upload of documents into the online system.

If you plan to stay for the open lab, please bring your electronic documents on a flash/usb drive.

The presentation will take less than 1/2 hour, followed by each open lab period.

How to Register

Please contact Mr. Yash Bhambhani at 570-348-6211 (x. 2233) or, and include your name, telephone number, and email address. As space is limited, you must register.

Institutional Account with Survey Monkey

Effective immediately, use of Marywood University's institutional account with Survey Monkey will no longer be allowed for research involving human subjects (only research requiring review by the Institutional Review Board or Exempt Review Committee).  This is due to security issues and the protection of human subjects.

While you may still utilize Survey Monkey's service for research, you will need to subscribe to a secure, personal account.  Subscriptions at various levels are available and may last as long as the researcher desires.  The type of account allowed will depend upon the nature of the research.

New Funding Search Tool: SPIN

The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs recently subscribed to SPIN.  You may access the search functions anywhere on campus without an account but you will need to register for off-campus use. This service is available to students as well as faculty and staff.

SPIN offers both active searching and automated opportunity matching and daily opportunity notifications and contains over 40,000 opportunities from more than 10,000 global sponsors.

SPIN provides training videos that may be helpful to new users. 

We hope that you find this tool useful and we are available to assist you with any questions that you might have.
