HSSC’s eIRB is a web-based, paperless system for IRB submissions, review, and management. eIRB supports initial applications, tracking, and routing of all submission types through the approval process and documents information required for the review of human subjects research. This includes initial application, amendments, reportable events, and continuing renewal submissions.
