Reminder: eIRB+ System Upgrade

Please note the eIRB+ system will undergo a software upgrade in order to incorporate functionality to comply with the revised federal regulations (effective date January 19, 2018), the NIH Single IRB policy (effective date January 25, 2018) and other system improvements.  In order to complete this upgrade, the eIRB+ system will be unavailable to all users from 6 p.m. Friday, January 12, 2018 through 8 a.m. Monday, January 15, 2018.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may present.  Thank you for your patience as we improve the eIRB+ system to better serve you.

Feel free to contact the IRB Office ( with any questions you may have regarding the eIRB+ upgrade.

Thank you,
