When accessing the CITI website via the WVU ORIC website page, researchers may see a new message on the CITI website. CITI is seeking to identify if the trainee is a brand new user of the CITI program or if they have existing account under a different username that needs to be merged with their WVU account. Trainees logging in for the first time should utilize their WVU institutional credentials (WVU MyID).
If this is your first time logging into CITI program, you should choose “I don’t have a CITI program account and need to create one.” Your new account will automatically be set up with your WVU username and password, so that when you login in the future using your WVU credentials, you will be automatically directed to the main menu of your CITI account.
Investigators and Research Community,
The IACUC committee has revised the Tail Biopsy for DNAExtraction in Mice.
The WVU Office of Research Integrity and Compliance is pleased to announce that the Human Research Protections Program (HRPP) has achieved full reaccreditation by the Association for the Accreditation of Human Research Protection Programs, Inc. (AAHRPP). This accreditation has been maintained by the HRPP at WVU since 2008. The WVU HRPP hosted the AAHRPP Site auditors during March 2016 and received full reaccreditation on September 19, 2016 following a lengthy review process.
Reaccreditation was determined after reviewing substantial evidence of adherence to policies, procedures, and practices established by the WVU HRPP. AAHRPP reaccreditation is a continued affirmation of the Institution’s commitment to protecting research participants. That commitment resonates not only with participants but also with researchers, sponsors, government agencies, and the general public. We would like to take this opportunity to extend our gratitude to those that contributed to obtaining this reaccreditation.
You can request a short-term login for a WVU-sponsored guest to gain WVU+kc access to complete or view an IRB protocol.

The WVU research office leadership has made a change in initial administrative review fee, charged by the WVU IRB. The charges will be applied to research protocols that have industry or private funding, and have used a private IRB for review. Initial submission fees have increased from $750 to $1,000. There has been no change in fees for the WVU IRB review of renewals or amendments for these types of research protocols.
The Office of Research Integrity and Compliance and the WVU Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee would like to announce the appointment of a new Chairperson, Dr. Matt Wilson. Dr. Wilson is a Professor in the Davis College Division of Animal and Nutritional Sciences and has been with the University for 16 years. Eight of those years he served on the WVU IACUC during which he served as Vice Chair for the last three.
Dr. Wilson is looking forward to promoting a positive working relationship between the IACUC and all animal users. Town hall meetings will be scheduled in the near future so Principal Investigators can get to know him and so he can get to know more of the animal users at WVU.
