Are you ready for the switch to the new eIRB system August 5th?

eIRB Graphic

The IRB development team is currently in the final stages of building a new and improved eIRB system, scheduled to go live August 5th, 2015. The new eIRB will help us support the rapidly growing research community at OHSU and maintain our high standards of compliance as a world-class research institution.

Only New Submissions on August 5th

Starting August 5th, the new eIRB will be open for new submissions! At this time, all current studies will remain in the current system - look for announcements on the schedule for full Data Migration. There is currently no scheduled down time.


Help get your protocols ready for data migration coming soon!

For studies expiring before September 30th, 2015, submit your CRQ early
to help avoid possible delays when the new eIRB launches.

Submit any pending Modification requests, CRQs or Reportable Events as soon as possible. Studies will be migrated to the new system only after these items are submitted and approved in the old system.

Withdraw any old items (studies, modifications, continuing reviews, reportable events) that you don't intend on submitting/resubmitting within the next 2 months. These items will not be migrated to the new system. Withdrawn items can still be accessed in the archive.

Be sure to archive all documents no longer being used in your research so that they do not have to be moved to the new system. See a list of examples here.

Rename documents with simplified and self-descriptive titles (e.g., Protocol, Consent Form, Recruitment Flyer, etc.).

We will be doing end-to-end testing soon and need current eIRB users like you to help us test in this phase. This is your last chance to test the new system as it is being developed, and for you to provide feedback to the development team. If you are interested in signing up to participate in this testing, please contact to sign up as a testing volunteer.



Please visit the IRB Forms page each time you create a new consent form to ensure that you are working from the latest version.
