PLEASE NOTE: Beginning Wednesday, December 4th, the Office for Research Integrity & Compliance (ORIC) will be upgrading the ePIRATE electronic IRB submission system over the next several days. Please be aware that you may experience slower response times in the system and may experience times when the system is briefly inaccessible. We do not expect any significant down time. Please contact the ORIC if you experience any errors or problems.
ePIRATE is the fully electronic IRB submission, review, and tracking system that eliminates the need for paper documents.Your research files are easily accessible through ePIRATE. At any time you may view the status, known in ePIRATE as "study state", of your submission. Features include electronic submissions including initial applications, amendments, and reportable events, continuing review reminders, and easy access for department chairs and other administrators to view up-to-date research submissions.
