IRB Project Timeline

Important Information

  • What is it?

    The Institutional Review Board (IRB) is established to protect the rights and welfare of human subjects involved in UCF research activities being conducted under its authority. Huron IRB will replace the existing iRIS system.

  • Why is it important?

    Migrating from iRIS to Huron IRB will provide ease of use for Principle Investigators, reviewers, IRB Staff, and IRB Committee Members to complete actions within the system. The reporting and metrics from Huron IRB are more advanced and will provide better insight into submission details. Improvements to routing, business processes, and committee review will make IRB submissions more efficient.

  • When will it be implemented?

    Go Live is planned for December 21, 2018. The decision to implement the IRB module of the Huron Research Suite first was made based on the timing of the Common Rule regulations changes (set for January 2019), the scope of IRB, and the Huron upgrade schedule (scheduled for 2020).
