Beginning June 1, 2011, we will begin accepting online submissions from the Schools of Public Health and Nursing, and other units that typically have their research studies reviewed by the PUBLIC HEALTH-NURSING IRB. The OHRE website will direct users to the online submission system as appropriate when you access IRB forms at: https://research.unc.edu/offices/human-research-ethics/online-submission/applications/index.htm.
We have continued to offer training sessions to give faculty, staff and students the opportunity to learn about the new system. A list of upcoming training sessions and online training materials can be found at: https://unc-research.sites.unc.edu/offices/human-research-ethics/online-submission/training/.
If you have questions about this important change, please don’t hesitate to contact the Office of Research Information Systems at 843-2594. Thanks in advance for your help through this transition.
