Friendly Reminder

This is a friendly reminder that if you have any of the following that were originally approved prior to January 3, 2019, action will soon be required:

  • Human subjects research
  • Animal subjects research
  • Recombinant DNA and biohazardous materials research

The Office of Research Integrity (ORI) implemented the NEW electronic research administration (eRA) system on January 3, 2019.

Upon implementation of eRA, ORI offered to grandfather all previously approved protocols for the first year and track two systems in order to reduce burden on researchers. As we are more than halfway through the first year of the new system, ORI wants to remind everyone in advance that ALL ACTIVE protocols must be entered into the eRA system prior to December 31, 2019. We strongly encourage researchers to make the switch to the eRA before December 31st to avoid any delays with their current protocol approvals.

Please note that if your protocol was previously approved by a full committee at a convened meeting, it will need to be reviewed again by the full committee. Please refer to the ORI website for submission deadlines and meeting dates. Once you enter your protocol into eRA and receive approval, the three year cycle will restart.
