NEW: The IACUC module of iRIS, an online research administration system, is now available for use.  This system replaces the use of Word document files for the new submission of protocols, amendments, annual reports, incident reports, and exemption requests.

For protocols currently approved in Word document format, please use the Word document templates for amendments and annual reports below.  Word document protocols will remain active until they are renewed in iRIS or until the three-year expiration date, whichever occurs first.

To access iRIS, please use the following link:
