IRB Will Launch New Proposal Management Platform in Spring 2018
In response to campus feedback about the proposal submission and review process, the IRB office will be adopting the online platform PACS to handle all proposal activity workflow.
This change will affect all students, faculty and staff who are submitting or supervising projects that go through the IRB, including past projects that require modifications or continuation. All researchers and research advisers will need to create an account to access PACS, and the IRB will be posting videos detailing the log in, submission and post-submission processes before launching to help the transition go as smoothly as possible.
We are planning to go live in early spring, with a possible start date as early as February 1. This will coincide with some major changes in human subjects research oversight being made at the federal level which should be official as of January 18, 2018.
Overall, this new platform should make the proposal review and approval process less cumbersome and more transparent for all users. Please stay tuned for more information!
