Beginning June 30, MyAccess will require Duo. Duo provides an extra layer of protection to ensure the security of logins beyond a password. Cyber-attacks are increasing, and Duo is an important way we protect our logins from misuse.

Internal (on-site) adverse events must now be submitted within 5-working days of UCSF PI awareness vs. 10 days previously.

COVID-19 Information for Researchers

Dear Colleagues,

Please note that the link to iRIS has been renamed “IRB – iRIS” in the list of MyAccess applications. It was previously named “CHR – iRIS.”

If you had “CHR – iRIS” as a favorite (i.e. yellow starred) link, it will still be in your list of favorites with the new name of “IRB – iRIS.”
