UVI Introducing IRBNet for Research Protocol Reviews

UVI’s Institutional Review Board (UVI-IRB) has announced the adoption of the industry leading IRBNet suite of tools – accessible via the National Research Network – bringing electronic protocol management, on-line submissions and many other important research oversight features to the University research community. IRBNet now brings the UVI research community a robust set of electronic tools supporting the management, submission, review and oversight of our research protocols that include reviews by the Institutional Review Board (IRB) for human subject studies, and the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committees (IACUC) for animal studies. 

UVI-IRB has carefully chosen IRBNet not only for the important capabilities that it provides, but also because IRBNet is secure, web-based, and extremely intuitive and easy to use. You may access IRBNet from virtually any computer using a web browser by visiting

UVI’s Institutional Review Board and Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee will begin accepting electronic protocol submissions via IRBNet effective Monday, Aug. 26, 2013, when all protocols (including revisions and renewals) must be submitted electronically via IRBNet, and when all review decision letters will be issued electronically via IRBNet.
