electronic Portal for Institutional Research at ECU
ePIRATE is the fully electronic IRB submission, review, and tracking system that will eliminate the need for multiple copies of paper documents and the burdens associated with storage of paper research documents. Your research files will be easily accessible through ePIRATE. At any time you will be able to view the status, known in ePIRATE as "study state", of your submission. Features include all electronic submissions including initial applications, amendments, and reportable events, continuing review reminders, and easy access for department chairs and other officials to a number of vital reports keeping them up-to-date on research occurring in their college, department and/or division.
