Coming Soon! Electronic Submission and Tracking of IRB Applications and Studies

GW will soon launch the human subjects module of a new Integrated Research Information Software (iRIS) that will automate processes that currently require printed forms, manage workflows, and allow investigators to track the status of their applications and training requirements. Instead of completing forms that are currently available on the OHR website, users will initiate requests in the online system.

The electronic IRB module is targeted to launch on Friday, June 1, 2018. The last day OHR will accept submissions using current forms is Thursday, May 24th.
