Enterprise Research Management System-Institutional Review Board module is now live

The Enterprise Research Management System (ERMS) application is now fully operational for the Agreements, Conflict of Interest and Institutional Review Board (IRB) modules. The ERMS-IRB module is a one-stop shop for all human subjects research. The ERMS-IRB module replaces email as the primary venue for study submissions and status checks.

Key points for the ERMS-IRB module:

  • All active, non-exempt studies have been transferred into the ERMS–IRB.
  • Principal investigators can appoint as many proxies as necessary to submit studies and changes on their behalf.
  • Users aren’t quite finished when clicking “Finish.” An item is not submitted to the IRB Office until “Submit” is clicked on the left-hand side of the main study screen.
  • Need help with a first submission? Schedule a concierge appointment to be walked through the entire process. Concierge Services Request.

For more information, check the ERMS information page, where resources on all ERMS modules can be found as well as views of the slides or presentation from the recent ERMS–IRB Town Hall.

Questions about ERMS-IRB and the transition can be sent to IRB@uthscsa.edu.
