Personnel Changes

Changes to the Primary Contact, Study Team Members, individuals listed on the Study Access List or the PI Proxy may be requested at any time.

Changing the Primary Contact 

  1. Open the study by clicking the study's name.
  2. Click Assign Primary Contact from the My Current Actions list on the left side of the screen
  3. A new window opens. 
  4. Click Clear to remove the current Primary Contact.
  5. Begin typing the name of the new contact. 
  6. Select the correct name from a list of matching names that appear, and
  7. Click OK.

Tips:

  • To change the primary contact, you must be a member of the study team or an individual listed on the Study Access List with "edit" privileges.
  • Modifications or continuing review submissions have the same primary contact as the initial study.

changing study team members

The addition or removal of study team members must be made in the section of the eIRB+ study titled “Study Team Members”.

Tips:

  • If the Principal Investigator is being changed, the PI name must be updated in the "Basic Information" section. 
  • The Regulatory Coordinators for the study will only be added to the Study Team Members section if they are a study team member. 
  • Personnel changes may also require a change to other study documents housed in eIRB, including the protocol, consent document, and recruitment materials.  In such cases, these documents should be revised as well during the revision process.  

Note:  Adding personnel to the Study Member list will not give that individual access to make changes to the eIRB+ study or receive eIRB+ notifications regarding the project. A person must be added to the Study Access List with "Edit" Privileges to be able to make changes to the study application.
