AURA IBC Update – System is Live!
This is to inform you that AURA-IBC, an electronic IBC protocol submission, review and management system, is now active. Following on the earlier implementations of AURA-Grants, AURA-IRB, and AURA-COI, AURA-IBC continues the progression toward a uniform and integrated online research administration platform for university-administered processes. Going forward, all new/resubmitted IBC protocols or IBC protocol amendments must be submitted within AURA-IBC.
