iMedris is Coming!

We are looking forward to the IRB’s transition from the current electronic management system to iMedRIS.  

  • * The new system will be effective July 1, 2017.  * Starting July 1, we will be accepting new applications only through iMedRIS.  The current link to the eIRB on the IRB webpage will be replaced with a link to iMedRIS and the current eIRB system will no longer be available at that time.    
  • * You can still submit IRB proposals. But, as we transfer to the new system in June, the review process may be delayed. Therefore, in order to facilitate a timely review of research, we encourage all researchers who wish to use the current system to submit their proposals before May 31st .  While researchers will still be able to upload their research to the current system in June, there may be delays in processing, and we will not be able to provide administrative support for transferring the research project to the new system.  This means that PIs will need to re-enter the information into the new system on their own once the new system is online.  All continuing research must be entered into the new system by August 28.
  • PLEASE NOTE: If you have ongoing, approved research that you expect to continue during the 2017-2018 academic year and have not requested administrative support, you will be responsible for resubmitting into the new system at the time of renewal. Please contact Chu Kim-Prieto ( with any questions.

*Of course, you are welcome to enter the information on your own.  Please note that it should be done so by August 28.

TRAINING:  A brief video on using the new system will be posted on the IRB webpage.  In addition, individual members of the IRB will hold training sessions during Spring and Fall semesters.  While the primary intended audience members will be researchers from their own schools, all are welcome to attend any session. Training dates: TBD.

Human Subjects CertificationPlease upload your valid NIH or CITI human subjects training certificate here.

Types of IRB Review

There are two categories of IRB review of proposed studies:

  1. Expedited Review
  2. Full Board Review
  3. Exemptions from IRB Review

Some proposals may be determined to be exempt from review. All proposals, however, must be submitted through the eIRB System.
